LGBT*

Leeds is a city known for its diverse and multi-cultural communities. The LGBT* culture of Leeds is an important part of this, full of big venues, nights out and huge events all year round.

 

 

The Calls and Lower Briggate is the main hub of LGBT* nightlife in Leeds. Queens Court, the biggest gay club in Leeds, has DJs and themed nights throughout the week across two floors.

 

Mission 2 have gay clubbing nights twice a week on Monday and Saturday while The Viaduct Showbar, just next door, have live performances from the International Viaduct Show Girls every Friday and Saturday night, alongside karaoke and cabaret acts.

Further down are The New Penny – the oldest gay pub in Leeds – Bar Fibre, Blayd’s Bar and the Bridge. And be sure to hit the cobbles between Bar Fibre and Queens Court on a Bank Holiday Sunday for their Courtyard Parties, with tunes and cocktails flowing day and night.

 

But the ‘must not miss’ event on the city’s LGBT* calendar is definitely Leeds Pride. Thousands come to the city for a diverse line up of mainstream and LGBT* acts at Millennium Square, a march through the centre of Leeds and the biggest parties until the early hours. A true celebration of Leeds’ diversity and equality, it’s the biggest event of its kind in Yorkshire
