LGBT Nottingham

Nottingham is a friendly and welcoming city, with a vibrant LGBTQ (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer) scene ready to explore. Hosting a variety of LGBTQ friendly bars and clubs, along with fantastic restaurants, shopping and a thriving theatre and arts scene, there are events to check out almost every night of the week showcasing our diverse culture.

Nightlife and Culture

Each July, Nottinghamshire Pride hits the streets of Nottingham, with a fabulous parade which culminates in a street party in Hockley. 

Pubs in the area include:

• The New Foresters pub - 18 St Anns Street, Nottingham

• The Lord Roberts pub - 24 Broad Street, Nottingham

• Propaganda bar/club - 8-10 Broadway, the Lace Market, Nottingham

• The Newmarket - 38 Lower Parliament St, Nottingham


If you enjoy a natter and want to meet other LGBTQ people, why not go to one of the many social groups on offer? Both Nottingham Trent University and The University of Nottingham have LGBT societies, and there are youth groups, women’s dining groups, POC groups and Christian LGBTQ groups operating in the city.


For those into healthy physical activity, there are both men’s and women’s football teams,  two badminton groups, three walking/outdoor groups and two men’s health clubs and saunas. Both universities and some colleges also have LGBT societies.

Info and Support

A range of health-related support services are provided by The Health Shop on Broad Street and the Victoria Health Centre on Glasshouse Street.
