LimePride: LGBTQIA+ Neighborhoods Around The World

One of our favorite parts of Pride month is to highlight destinations where LGBTQIA+ communities had and continue to have a meaningful impact on the culture.

In many of the cities we serve, there are specific neighborhoods that stand out for their vibrant energy, welcoming atmosphere, and rich history.

We believe that communities thrive when people are connected. That’s why we’re dedicated to providing transportation to all, regardless of age, background, income, and ability. This Pride Month, it’s especially important to us that we show up and support LGBTQIA+ communities. We’ve outfitted our e-bikes and e-scooters in rainbow so Limers around the world can Lime With Pride. We’ll be donating to local LGBTQIA+ organizations to help foster a safe and inclusive community for all.

This Pride month, we’re helping our riders find the best places to see a drag show, learn about LGBTQIA+ history and the ongoing fight for civil rights, and experience the celebration of Pride as only these communities can deliver. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite LGBTQIA+ neighborhoods:
