Gay & Lesbian Bellingham Washington

Bellingham Wa  has a substantial Lesbian & Gay community, although it may not be very apparent because many local gays & lesbians choose a more laid back existence than those living in places like Seattle or San Francisco. You won't see any giant marches and parades and there is no so called "Gay Ghetto",  but there are gay owned shops and restaurants and yes there is a gay bar as well as other gay friendly pubs and nightspots. 

  • Gays & Lesbians Chowing Down Photo - Friends Sharing DinnerBellingham has approximately 10% more gays & lesbians than the national average according to a 2003 survey, however, ask any local gay or lesbian and they will tell you it's much more.

  • Did you know?: Bellingham bay was named after a bookkeeper by George Vancouver. The city of Bellingham was created with the merging of 3 cities. Fairhaven, Sehome, and Whatcom. It took the name of the bay and became one city--Bellingham Washington.

  • Bellingham is known as the city of subdued excitement and some residents like to be called Bellinghamsters.

Gay & Lesbian Bullet TrainHandsome Tattoo Guy With Pierced Ear - Goatee BeardBetween Seattle & Vancouver B.C.

Bellingham is a stop on Amtrak's Cascades route that links up several major cities with Large Gay & Lesbian communities, from Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia,Canada.Hopping on a train at Bellingham's beautiful Fairhaven station is like boarding a magic carpet ride to Seattle, Portland, or Vancouver, and it is surprisingly affordable.The route between Bellingham and Seattle winds along the water's edge and gives you spectacular views of Puget Sound and the San Juan Islands.   The Cascades train route is considered to be one of the most scenic rail trips in North America.       Keep a sharp eye out for bald eagles, seals, and perhaps even a pod of killer whales.If you are traveling northbound you'll want to be sitting at a left side window seat, and on southbound trips you'll want a right side window seat for the best view.Downtown Bellingham

Why would a Gay or Lesbian want to live in Bellingham?  

The same reason anyone would.  The breathtaking beauty, recreational opportunities, the  San Juan Islands,  and overall quality of life Bellingham has to offer.



Handsome Guy With Weights And NecklaceBellingham  is relatively progressive and sophisticated, perhaps due to its proximity to Seattle and Vancouver B.C. , and another factor may be the enormous influx of California and Oregon residents over the years that are used to having gay or lesbian neighbors and don't give it a thought.
