LGBTQ Friendly Alexandria

On the Potomac River within eyesight of Washington, DC, Alexandria, Virginia welcomes LGBTQ couples, families and friends to our historic city. Alexandria is nationally recognized for its rich history and beautifully preserved 18th- and 19th-century architecture - an extraordinary backdrop for acclaimed, chef-driven restaurants; a thriving boutique scene; vibrant arts and culture; and a welcoming, walkable lifestyle.

Alexandria is recognized by the Human Rights Campaign as one of the top cities in the state with LGBTQ-friendly policies, and Visit Alexandria is proud to join Virginia Tourism Corporation’s new statewide LGBTQ initiative to provide all visitors with a welcoming experience.

The following businesses have been designated as LGBTQ-friendly by completing a Visit Alexandria LGBTQ workshop and by making a continued commitment to LGBTQ-friendly policies and practices.
