Tell Us Your Thoughts about LGBTQ+ Community Specific Events and Spaces, Such as Pride, Clubs, Youth Groups, Community Centers

  1. Gill Warren says:

    In Bristol we’ve lost the spaces where people could go where drinking was not expected ( bookshop, cafe), so the only places the youngsters can meet are pubs and clubs, which don’t cater for those who may be struggling with addiction. They also don’t cater for the older crowd. There are activities going on – if people are aware of them. It would be helpful if there was a community based signpost system to activities and meeting places.

    I miss lesbian only bars & clubs. I rarely go out anymore because we had our own safe space regardless of ‘type’ lesbian you were femme, butch, leather, chapstick etc. It’s sad I used to feel like I belonged now there’s nothing

    In the 80s and 90s I went to a lot of LGBT clubs and bars. In the early 2000s, I was the film festival scene for me. Now, there aren’t any real specific spaces for us. Here in the Castro, SF, I go to the academy every now and again. Otherwise straight restaurants that are gay friendly are more my speed. I’m currently writing a film that takes place in the 90s where there is a lesbian bar deep in an industrial complex— hidden, undefined. Personally I miss those spaces.

    I wish we had more LGBTQ+ events, clubs and community centers, etc. part of me is afraid to attend anything large. Afraid of being targeted. I live in Florida, USA – home of the “don’t say gay bill”, and our government is not supportive of the gay community. I would love to see more acceptance-based events for teens
