A gay village also known as a gay neighborhood , gay enclave , gayvenue , gay ghetto , gaytto , gay district , gaytown or gayborhood is a geographical area with generally recognized boundaries, inhabited or frequented by many lesbian , gay , bisexual , and transgender LGBT people. Gay villages often contain a number of gay-oriented establishments, such as gay bars and pubs, nightclubs , bathhouses , restaurants , boutiques and bookstores. Such areas may represent a LGBT-friendly oasis in an otherwise hostile city, or may simply have a high concentration of gay residents and businesses. Much as other urbanized groups, some LGBT people have managed to utilize their spaces as a way to reflect their cultural value and serve the special needs of individuals in relation to society at large.
Gay pride or LGBT pride is the promotion of the self-affirmation , dignity, equality, and increased visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender LGBT people as a social group. Pride, as opposed to shame and social stigma , is the predominant outlook that bolsters most LGBT rights movements. Ranging from solemn to carnivalesque, pride events are typically held during LGBT Pride Month or some other period that commemorates a turning point in a country's LGBT history , for example Moscow Pride in May for the anniversary of Russia's decriminalization of homosexuality.
