Traveling to LGBT-Friendly Albuquerque

(For Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgendered Travelers) Pride Guide

Albuquerque celebrates diversity as an all-around destination for the LGBT traveler. Encounter enchanting art and performance, exquisite cuisine including the flavors and spices of New Mexico, and the gorgeous high desert climate. We are certainly a broad and beautiful community.

That said, it is difficult to direct you to a “gay neighborhood” or area. Instead, you should know that Albuquerque is “out all-around” and an open book of experiences waiting to happen. In any one of our unique neighborhoods - from Old Town to Nob Hill – a visitor can shop, eat, and experience our culture in ways that transcend a common LGBT Visitor Guide narrative.

Diverse cultures, authentic art and vibrant traditions have shaped the centuries-old story of Albuquerque. Visit to experience the history that continues to unfold with premier cultural events, distinctive attractions, family activities, museums and shopping. Nowhere is the confluence of past and present more dramatic than in Albuquerque, where the modern city skyline is set against a backdrop of the ancient Sandia Mountains and an endless blue sky.

Spectacular weather, with 310 days of sunshine, makes Albuquerque an ideal destination for outdoor activities, including golfing, biking and skiing. Our fabulous weather makes Albuquerque the “Hot Air Balloon Capital of the World.” Take a sunrise ride for a breathtaking bird’s eye view of the city.

Albuquerque celebrates diversity and welcomes the LGBT community with our Southwestern hospitality.
