Greater Akron rests upon a foundation built by the
contributions and opinions of our diverse citizenry. We extend an open
invitation to the LGBTQ community to experience and enjoy everything our
area has to offer.
Discover Akron’s Northside District, a collection of restored buildings,
galleries and restaurants on the northern edge of downtown; stop by High
Street and Maiden Lane, both of which offer spots for casual fun and
creative activity; or visit Highland Square, an eclectic neighborhood west
of downtown Akron that’s packed with unique shopping and dining options. While we know interests within the community differ, below is a sampling
of LGBTQ-friendly sites. Be sure to contact the Akron Pride Initiative
(759 W. Market St., Akron, 44303, 330.252.1559, www.canapi.org) for further information on events and programs in the area.
