Ann Arbor

Anchored by the University of Michigan and home to a well-known “gayborhood” in Braun Court, Ann Arbor is ranked as the second most LGBT-friendly city in Michigan by the Human Rights Campaign’s Municipal Equality Index.

Braun Court, located directly across the street from Kerrytown and the Farmer’s Market, is home to the LGBT-focused Jim Toy Community Center, Trillium Real Estate, Common Language LGBT Bookstore and \aut\Bar, a dedicated LGBT bar in the city since 1995.

LGBT people can be open and accepted in most any social environment here where there are abundant opportunities to enjoy arts and culture with dozens of unique galleries, and a variety of museums all within the downtown area — including the distinguished University of Michigan Museum of Art. Some of the most recognizable traditions include the Ann Arbor Art Fair and OUTFest, an annual LGBT pride celebration hosted by JTCC. Located in the heart of Ann Arbor’s entertainment district, Necto Nightclub has been running the premier LGBT club night every Friday known as PRIDE Night nonstop since 1984.

Between its beautiful parks, incredible array of unique shops and diverse restaurants – including the famous Zingerman’s Deli – Ann Arbor is a thriving example of colorful urban living.
