The LGBTQ+ liberation movement has come far in the UK but it can still be pretty tough to find spaces and events where you can be completely yourself as a queer woman. Even if there are LGBTQ+ clubs in your area it’s tough to find your community or one that suits you. At the end of the day everyone should feel safe on a night out and there are places and nights out there that cater to queer women. It’s just a case of finding them and getting your girls together. Here are seven UK club nights for queer women. There’s been a resurgence in LGBTQ+ club nights and you need to get involved.
Up until a couple of years ago it looked like the queer club scene had all but died. In 2017 Gay Times reported that over a ten year period 58 percent of LGBTQ+ venues in London had closed down. While a lot of this was attributed to gentrification, exhibitions like Queer Spaces has shone a light on the venues that the city lost and the significance they held to the community. However, there seems to have been a resurgence in queer nightlife. While you may have resigned yourself to a life of aimlessly swiping through dating apps in coffee shops in the hope that the barista that you’ve had a crush on for six months will ask you out, all is not lost. Here are seven of the hottest UK club nights for queer women.
