At first glance, because Buffalo is so small, people might feel like there’s not a lot going on here in the LGBTQ community. You just have to know where to look and do a little more investigating that maybe you’d have to do in a bigger city. I think you’d have to go pretty far outside of the city and Western New York to find a place that isn’t. As a lesbian, there’s no specific lesbian bar to go to.
There may be some pockets here or there but overall I think it’s incredibly welcoming. It’s a monthly get-together where a group of LGBTQ individuals crash a straight bar or club at a different location throughout the city. Paradise Wine in downtown Buffalo is a great place for liquor and whiskey. I mean, I’m sure it’s a challenge in every city but because we’re a smaller city you end up knowing everyone. On the plus side, being single you really can hang out anywhere because you’re just as likely to meet an eligible guy or gal in a straight bar as a gay bar.
