Chicago, IL Gay Massage
The Magnificent Mile shopping area and more than 30 miles of lakefront paths make Chicago a great outdoors walking city. There is a large gay population in Chitown primarily centered around Boystown (around Halstead). Just walking through Boystown (in the Lakeview area of town) you’ll see the rainbow flags and the gay pride all around.
A Reflexology Massage on your sore feet (from all the walking around the city) or a great Deep Tissue / Swedish Massage would feel great on your back, shoulders and calves from all the soreness of walking around Pilsen, Wicker Park and Andersonville as well (very popular gay areas of Chicago).
