Welcome to Lexington, Kentucky - the Horse Capital of the World. Kentucky’s second largest city is home to a population of 325,000 and hosts a vibrant downtown scene sitting just miles away from world famous horse farms in the rolling hills of the Bluegrass.
In 1999, Lexington was the first local government in Kentucky to pass a county-wide, fully-inclusive Fairness Ordinance including protection from employment, housing and public accommodations discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. In 2021, Lexington scored a 106 on the Human Rights Campaign Municipal Equality Index – the highest score of any city in Kentucky. The city currently has over two dozen organizations providing support and outreach to LGBTQ+ residents – including the Mayor’s Office and Lexington Police Department that both have LGBTQ+ Liaisons.
Come see why Travel + Leisure listed Lexington as one of “The 50 Best Places to Travel in 2021” – the vibe of our city continues to grow and we want you to experience it for yourself.
