Leicester Guide 2019
by Gay Times as the 4th best place for gay men and lesbians
to live in Britain, Leicester has a fairly large, vibrant
and diverse gay scene, some tremendous bars and its own
Pride festival around the end of August / Early September.
With a large student population (2 universities) and well
established gay friendly bars and venues, it's certainly
worth checking out.
Pride is Leicester's annual Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender
(LGBT) festival, held at the beginning of September each year
There's much more to Leicester Pride than the one day event and,
the festival will span a full nine days with a series of art,
culture, sport, music and film events celebrating the great diversity
of the LGBT community.
2016 event is scheduled to take place on Saturday 3rd September.
Previous events have been incredibly successful and we hope the
2016 event will be even better. See the Leicester
Pride website for further information.
