Tacoma doesn't have the gay scene like Seattle but there is one. Most of the gay population lives in the Downtown area (Downtown, Stadium District, St. Helens, McCarver, Hilltop). There are 2 gay bars in Downtown (The Mix and Club Silverstone), the Rainbow Center is a LGBT resource center in DT and there are a many LGBT owned businesses in Downtown. There is a Lesbian owned bar in Hilltop (Tempest Lounge) and The Monsoon Room is gay friendly but it recently closed and I am not sure if they are reopening.
The gay pride event is held in Wright Park downtown.

2 years ago the Hilltop area was named one of the top emerging gay neighborhoods in the country. 1 of only 3 named for the western USA.

There are 2 gay bars in South Tacoma (Club Fever and The Airport Tavern) but not really a large gay population in that part of the city.
