Philadelphia was founded more than 300 years ago by Englishman William Penn on principles of equality and freedom of expression. Today, the “city of brotherly love” is a welcoming place for people from around the world, and a great destination for gay and lesbian travelers.

Famous as the birthplace of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, the cradle of liberty offers much more than cobblestone streets and historical landmarks. Cultural, culinary, artistic and ethnic treasures abound in this city and its surrounding countryside.
