Chicago is the nation's third largest city and boasts a large gay community. Like New York or Atlanta in their regions, Chicago serves as the Midwest's cosmopolitan hub and attracts young and old alike--all looking to escape to the freedoms and opportunities of the big city. Gay life and gay bars in Chicago is mostly concentrated in two areas: Boystown really "East Lakeview" and Andersonville which is farther up the city's north side.

By Andrew Collins. Situated on the north side of Chicago - a mile or so north of the city's most gay-identified neighborhood, Lakeview - the diverse and engaging Andersonville neighborhood is also one of the top places to live, work, and play among LGBT persons. Historically home to large Swedish and subsequently Middle Eastern populations, the neighborhood began to gain popularity with lesbians and gays in the s and has remained one of the city's alternative community hubs ever since.
