Although the LGBTQ scene in Little Rock, Arkansas, is much more subdued than in big southern cities like Austin or Memphis, there are a few places for the gay community to mingle with kindred spirits.
Club sway - temporarily closed
Known as "the biggest little city in the South," Little Rock is home to more than 1 million people, tons of fun bars, and a diverse culinary scene. LGBTQ folk are in good company, seeing as Little Rock has in the past been ranked the 11th " gayest city " in the country a feat for such a small place.
There's no shortage of gay-friendly bars and clubs to find yourself in after dark.
If you're a lover of the nightlife, then concentrate your time in Little Rock around the downtown area—River Market Street, especially—where many of the watering holes are. There is no deated "gayborhood," but the bars and clubs here are extremely inclusive of the LGBTQ community. Little Rock's club scene is so robust it would give any bigger city a run for its money.
Some are even gay-leaning. It features musical acts like in the past Betty Who, who remade the "Queer Eye" theme song, and is always centered around a theme.
Adults will love the alcoholic beverages on offer while taking in a Pride Talk and, meanwhile, their kids can play in the family zone. Food trucks and vendors offer plenty of food and shopping opportunities, too. On the afternoon of the event, a festive and rainbow-colored parade makes its way down President Clinton Avenue.
While the festival only lasts one day, there are often events surrounding it pool parties or gay rendezvous at downtown bars. Otherwise, there are a couple of other happenings throughout the year that aren't technically gay-leaning, but welcoming nonetheless. Actively scan device characteristics for identification.
