Pride Journey Outdoors: Louisville, Kentucky

What do you think of when you think of Kentucky? The Derby? Bourbon? Well, head over to Louisville for a walk on one of the most fabulous pedestrian bridges in the country.

The Big Four® Bridge links Louisville Waterfront Park to Jeffersonville, Indiana over the Ohio River. The Big Four® was built as a railroad bridge in 1895, and decommissioned in the 1960s, when the ramps to the bridge on both sides of the river were removed. It was included in the original Waterfront Master Plan as a pedestrian bridge. The bridge opened to the public in February 2013, and it averages more than 1.5 million visits per year. Big Four Bridge is also the backdrop of Kentuckiana pride, typically held in June.

Louisville is also extremely gay-friendly and offers a variety of LGBTQ nightlife venues, including Play Dance Bar operating under proper social distancing guidelines.
