Gay Cincinnati - Famous hot Chili and much more

Someone once called Cincinnati the "Queen City of the West". Maybe that's because Cincinnati is home to a lively gay scene, with the gay community thriving in the Northside area of the city. There are many gay and lesbian bars, clubs, restaurants and hotels to choose from. Cincinnati is well known as a gay friendly city, with its annual Gay and Lesbian Pride Alive Festival attracting thousands as the highlight of the gay events calendar. The city is also home to great historic attractions such as the John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge, built in 1867. The Contemporary Arts Center is also well known for its sometimes controversial exhibits such as Robert Mapplethorpe's nude photography. And since you are right on the border of Kentucky, do walk across the bridge to say you visited two states on your trip. Whatever you're after, Cincinnati's got it covered.
