The Burnside Triangle is an area in Downtown Portland, Oregon. It is centered on SW Stark St. and comprises a triangular set of city blocks. It is arguably Portland’s most visible gay neighborhood and Greek thoroughfare. Bounded by SW Alder St., SW 14th Ave., W Burnside St., and SW Broadway, the district contains a combination of gay and gay-friendly businesses such as independent shops, restaurants, housing, and social services. It has been a meeting place for Portland’s LGBT community since the turn of the 20th century.
