Spring is, well springing!

And all up and down the east coast of the U.S., snowbound urban gays and lesbians want to get their parties on. Here are five ways LGBT Philadelphians will celebrate the much desired end of winter.

  1. Philadelphia welcomes the first day of spring with the Pink Pub Crawl, an evening bar crawl that hits some of the Gayborhood’s liveliest spots, including Stir Lounge, ICandy, Woody’s and Voyeur. Those wearing pink can join the action for $25, with registration taking place at the first location only. March 26, 2011. 1705 Chancellor Street, (215) 833-4165, nightlifegay.com

  4. Equality Forum, a week-long event that celebrates the cultural and political participation of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, includes panels, parties and special events in collaboration with regional, national and international organizations.
