Viva la GaYBOR!

Community. Diversity. Growth. Pride. For six years, the GaYBOR District Coalition has strived to bring these ingredients to our historic quarter. The goal? To continue Ybor City's renaissance by promoting tourism and local businesses.

This year, we celebrate many successful events and fundraisers with over 250 GLBT and GLBT-friendly members. You'll find them everywhere throughout Ybor City and Tampa Bay - they are the restaurants, bistros and bars; the boutiques, shops, hotels and galleries; and of course, many of the residents themselves. It’s true – GaYBOR is not just a destination, it’s an experience! 

Please stop by one of our monthly meetings, attend one of our pub crawls or fundraisers, or join our growing membership of businesses and residents. There’s always something to do in the GaYBORhood!
