Lynn's ethnic makeup reflects its status as a vibrant and diverse community, with residents from a wide range of cultural backgrounds contributing to the city's social fabric. Lynn’s gay and lesbian bars were historically dominated by whites, but always included Hispanic, black, and Asian patrons, whose numbers increased over time. Fran’s place held a Hispanic Night on Sundays. Club Central held a Brazilian night. In 2021 Lynn elected its first Filipino and openly gay city councilor, Constantino A. "Coco" Alinsug. United Lynn Pride was founded with a goal of inclusivity. Addressing racial issues within the LGBTQ+ community requires acknowledging the intersections of race, gender, and sexual orientation and working towards systemic change that promotes equity, inclusion, and justice for all LGBTQ+ individuals, regardless of race or ethnicity.
