Sacramento PrideWith a final score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign's 2019 Municipality Index Scorecard, Sacramento is a safe, fun and welcoming community for our visitors and residents alike. Sacramento's gay and lesbian community has grown to make the city, and in particular, Midtown, a popular destination for visitors of all interests.
