Places we recommend:

Birmingham LGBT Centre

As always Birmingham LGBT will host a range of activities and events throughout Pride weekend, and provide a safe space for members of the community and allies to recuperate.

Outside of the wristband zone, the Birmingham LGBT centre offers a safe and affordable space, whilst still retaining all of the atmosphere and pride.

 

The Fox

The Fox is the Midlands Premier Lesbian Bar in the Heart of Birmingham’s Gay Village. 

The Fox remains a true gay bar catering mainly for the girls and their friends. Home of the women’s stage.

The Fox is inside the gay village and requires a wristband to access.

The LesFlicks film club launches in Birmingham following successful launches in London and Manchester.

Not only a positive representation of young women, it is also a story that features a well-adjusted, clever, intelligent lesbian. There isn’t a contrived storyline – this is just an amazing story about two women, one of which happens to be a lesbian. It is brilliantly written and acted and well worth a watch.
