Leeds is a welcoming and inclusive city that can be enjoyed by all and Leeds’ LGBT+ nightlife has a great reputation. The Freedom Quarter is a hive of activity with plenty of LGBT+ venues to choose from. The New Penny is one of the UK’s longest running LGBT+ venues, and Leeds oldest gay bar. The award-winning Viaduct Showbar will entertain you with cabaret and live shows while Fibre will have you dancing until the small hours.

That’s just the start; other places to check out for a welcoming atmosphere and spectacular array of entertainment are Bridge Inn, Blayds bar, Tunnel Leeds and Queens Court. Wharf Chambers is a bar in the centre of Leeds that regularly host queer nights such as club nights and karaoke. Or if you’d prefer to relax with a bite to eat and a coffee there’s Flamingos Coffee House; a dry, late night LGBT+ friendly Coffee House, open 7 days a week.
As well as the annual ‘must not miss’ Leeds Pride, when thousands come to the city for a diverse line up of acts at the UK’s friendliest pride, there are a number of LGBT+ events including Leeds Queer Film Festival and Leeds LGBT+ Literature Festival.
