Gay Lexington: "Horse Capital"

Lexington is a long-standing haven for the LGBT family in Kentucky, currently it's the only city in Kentucky to have markers that commemorate LGBTQ history. 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. During the months of April and October, Keeneland Race Course holds live Thoroughbred racing during the day. Lexington's drag shows and music still makes for some of the best dancing scenes in the city, so be sure to bring your dancing shoes and applause.
