LGBTQ+ Friendly Greater Wilmington, Delaware & the Brandywine Valley

Whether you’re traveling with your partner, your friends or solo, you’ll find a warm welcome for LGBTQ+ travelers in Wilmington and the Brandywine Valley.

In Wilmington, gay bar and nightclub Crimson Moon features theme nights, drag shows and DJs for an unforgettable nightlife experience. The aptly named The Queen hosts drag brunches starring Delaware’s most fierce and fabulous performers. At The Comic Book Shop, gather with like-minded LGBTQ+ nerds (affectionate) for book clubs and other fun events.

Performing arts lovers have many different stages to choose from, but for rarely performed pieces and envelope-pushing topics (or audience favorites like Hedwig and the Angry Inch), grab a seat at City Theater Company. The Wilmington Drama League produces six to eight shows a year, from Broadway musicals to moving dramas that emphasize themes of diversity and inclusion.

Drag queen bingo and trivia events wreak regular havoc at Liquid Alchemy Beverages in Wilmington.

We’d love for you to join us each June for Delaware Pride too. But whether it’s Pride month or not, there’s lots to do here all year. Come discover us!

Explore Greater Wilmington's History, Culture and Gardens.

Wilmington & the Brandywine Valley have been described as town and garden, historic and hip, beauty and brains, and past and present.  It is like a riveting, romantic tale of two cultures, two centuries… even two different worlds.  Wilmington is the town side of the equation, the urban hub were 21st century thrives as a cultural renaissance is underway.  Four-star restaurants, fine art and world-class entertainment share space with tax-free shopping from big box to boutique.

Travel north into the Brandywine Valley and the visual landscape quickly transforms to a different time and place.  Here the elegant estates and glorious gardens of a bygone era are a testament to the influence of the du Pont family.  Reminiscent of a Downton Abbey episode.
