The Dupont-Logan-U Street area is the center of gay pride events each year, including the parade which runs from Dupont Circle around to Thomas Circle NW. The historically gay neighborhood in DC was, for decades, Dupont Circle–although not so much anymore.

Is the Logan Circle area the new Dupont Circle when it comes to all things gay? Is 17th Street NW still the city’s gay Main Street? After all, the city did just co-name a stretch of 17th for gay activist Frank Kameny on Thursday.

The gay neighborhood certainly seems to move a little farther east each year–and south and north as well. One might ask, “Does DC still have a single ‘gay neighborhood?’ ” Take the poll below: Where is DC’s gay neighborhood in 2010?
