Within the last 12 years the LGBTQ community has rapidly evolved in regards to places, and common spots where members of the clanship can gather together for entertainment, and relaxation in some of the most populated cities in Ecuador.

According to a news article posted by El Universo, one of the majors newspapers in Ecuador, since the year 2006 the LGBTQ tourism towards Ecuador, and the Galapagos archipelago started to increase at a moderate pace, propelling the need to create places for local and foreigners citizens of this segment of the society that is considered among the top niches in the Tourism industry with an offer of well educated, and well-traveled individuals with a taste for high-end products, and services.

However, bear in mind that even though the availability of outgoing places for LGBTQ members in Ecuador has a decent range of choices, the tendencies implemented like in other places around the world, that strongly have defined certain neighborhoods within the metropolitan areas of the cities, such as Boystown in Chicago, or even the Castro district in San Francisco - California, are still slowly developing in our country when compare to those locations.

Nonetheless, the openness and friendliness that characterize, for the most part, the Ecuadorian people in regards to the approach to outsiders, and tourists from different backgrounds in life, is without a doubt the most charming, as well as sincere in Latin America.

Among places where LGBTQ members can enjoy in the Capital city of San Francisco de Quito in Ecuador, we have a wide range between bars, restaurants, hotels, night-clubs,  SPA’s –Saunas, movie theaters, shop stores, and public places that are friendly, and tolerant to the LGBTQ joinder.

One of the most important LGBTQ organizations in Ecuador, “ALIANZA EQUIDAD” – (, is constantly promoting activities, as well as educating the local LGBTQ community with workshops about sexual education, HIV prevention, Legal advice, human rights, and psychological counseling to its members, among other services.

On top of that ALIANZA EQUIDAD participates in 3 main events during the year designed for the proudly rainbow flag crowds, which reflect a strong identity with the Gay and Lesbian international movement in this small but diverse country in the middle of the world.

These events are considered among local fellows of the community as, Key Game changers in driving to the Ecuadorian society the Harmony along events such as the Gay Pride Parade, the Gay rights (A.K.A Silent Day), and the HIV day prevention.

Among the suggestions of ALIANZA EQUIVIDA in regards to openly friendly places for the LGBTQ community, there are the following:
