5. Pittsburgh

The historic home of daddy Andy Warhol, mommy Gertrude Stein, and cool lezzie aunt Willa Cather, Pittsburgh has always had a gay streak, but it’s been unsung as a major destination. But now gays and lesbians are taking advantage of the bargain housing prices in this beautiful, cleaned-up urban landscape. The vibrant arts community — including the Warhol Museum (Warhol.org) and the Mattress Factory contemporary art museum (Mattress.org) — plus a vigorous theater arts program at Carnegie Mellon University is augmented by the well-attended Pittsburgh International Lesbian & Gay Film Festival (PILGFF.org) over 10 days in October, and the fast-growing Pride Theater Festival over two weekends in June.
