Gay Lexington: Buck up for Thoroughbred City


Lexington is a long-standing haven for the LGBT family in Kentucky. Downtown Lexington and the Martin Luther King District serve as the city's gay epicenter. Small but fierce seems the best way to describe the scene, headed up by the Bar Complex which houses three rooms in a former speak-easy space, and the newly renovated Pulse Nightlife. Top 40 dance music and drag shows are a staple in Lexington gay clubs, so be sure to bring your dancing shoes and applause.
