& Lesbian Bellingham - Bellingham's Gay Scene
& Lesbian Bellingham
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",
there are gay owned shops and restaurants
and yes there is a gay bar as
well as other gay friendly pubs and nightspots.
Bellingham 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
Bellingham is known as the city of subdued
excitement and some residents like to be called Bellinghamsters.
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.
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.
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.
