New York is definitely the best city for everyone, regardless of your race, color, sex, religious creed, origin, ancestry, sexual orientation, age, etc! Take a look at what a New York City for girls that like girls looks like!
New York is one the best cities in the world to go out, right?
So, we decided to ask the help of our lovely friends Ashley Custer and Kristin Heckler, founder of Uprooted Flower Truck to give us a hand! Oh, we’ve written about them a while back, besides shooting a fantastic YouTube video.
They put together the best list of places in New York for girls that like girls, so check the out below!

#10 NYC Dyke Bar Takeover
“Dyke Bar Takeover hosts countless events all over the city at different days and times. As they explain – a group of artists and activists dedicated to creating and supporting Queer space for self-identified womyn https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Womyn-born_womyn, transgender and non-binary people of all races.”
#11 GO Magazine
“GO Magazine is based in NYC and writes about all things lesbian. We love their lez (a.k.a. lesbian) perspective when it comes to everything from health to motherhood to culture. I’m proud to have them represent our community!”
#12 Dancing with Her
“Not an NYC business but a new major crush for Uprooted. The magazine focuses on modern lesbian weddings exclusively and we love their Instagram! We are getting married in October and love seeing this representation in the wedding market. Plus, it’s run by a lesbian couple as well.”
Thank you Ashley and Kristin for the great tips and we wish you, in advance, all the love in your upcoming marriage!
We will soon post about Boys That Like Boys, so stay tuned!!!
