In real life, gayborhoods got started under the threat of homophobia. Gay people were motivated to live close to each other, so they could have a community of people who wouldn't judge them for being gay. But now that gay tolerance is becoming more mainstream (in some countries, anyway), there's somewhat less motivation for gay people to move to the nearest gayborhood. Some people are worried that widespread tolerance, though obviously a good thing overall, will [[http://www.nytimes.com/2015/06/27/us/scotus-same-sex-marriage-gay-culture.html reduce]] the population or uniqueness of the gayborhoods and their associated culture.

* It's possible to craft one of these in [[VideoGame/TheSims The Sims 2 and 3]], though without the use of mods and hacks to eliminate the desired opposing gender it only works so much.
** In ''The Sims 3'', this can happen if a sim enacts a same-sex romantic interaction, especially with an inactive sim.

* Market Square, the setting of GoodbyeToHalos. Somewhat subverts the trope as it's known as a "grimy little run-down neighborhood".

* Comedian Dat Phan has a bit about living in a Gayborhood, because it was a nice place, affordable, relatively safe, and he didn't realize until after he moved in. As of his first ComedyCentral special, his mother (who [[RunningGag thinks that earrings mean guys are either gay or in a gang, depending on the ear]]) still hadn't realized that he was gay-adjacent.

The Gayborhood is often an upscale district, feeding the stereotype that all gay people have money out the yinyang. [[TheFundamentalist Religious fundamentalists]] often preach about the evils of "''that'' part of town," seeing it as a modern-day [[Literature/TheBible Sodom and Gomorrah]], where prostitution and drug abuse run rampant, [[DepravedHomosexual depraved homosexuals]] have bare buttsecks out of seedy bathhouses, and where one can't so much as bend over to pick up change without having a {{Leatherman}} on top of him like white on rice ([[ArmoredClosetGay how they know all of this is]] [[YouAreWhatYouHate a different story]]).

** Chuecas, in Madrid, Spain.

** Chuecas, Chueca, in Madrid, Spain.Spain. Though an odd mix between an expansion and a de-centralisation has rendered the whole Centro District with a remarkable even ratio for gay towards straight people. At times it would seem that everybody is gay in such iconic places as Puerta del Sol. But still, Chueca remains as a get-go term for Madrid's homosexual population.
