Experience gay Portland. As a city with a reputation for progressive values and acceptance, Portland offers up great art, food, and tons of shopping as well as outdoors activities. Let us introduce you to the big city with a small town feel. Gay Portland is all about slowing things down and enjoying a custom made lifestyle centered on cafés, breweries, and a still thriving bookstore scene. But Portland isn’t all about the culture, or the coffee, or the shopping in Nob Hill. We'll show you which food cart to hit up on your way to Columbia River Gorge, where a waterfall is sure to take your breath away.
