Lesbian Dating Plymouth Style!
The lesbian dating scene in the UK is vibrant and diverse. From LGBTQI+ bars to lesbian stand up comedy nights, most British cities and counties have a scene to offer. Nevertheless, the gay male scene argubaly has more visibility than the lesbian scene when it comes to spaces tailored for them to date and enjoy the night life. This is rooted in the history of the western world’s relationship with masculinity and in the fact that while being a gay male was illegal in the UK until the late 1960s, being an out lesbian was never officially against the law, although it did often mean severe discrimination. Despite this history, it is still important for queer women to have their own scene carved out within British society in the same way it is for queer men. The beauty of sexuality and queerness is in its diversity, which is often forgetton in media portrayals which tend to depict narrow stereotypes of all members of the LGBTQI+ community.

The Rainbow Connection Having launched only this past February, the Rainbow Connection is a three-mile-long trail which runs from Stonehouse to the Barbican, stopping at 17 sites with a connection to LGBTQI+ people, events and stories. Find out about the now-lost underground queer clubs of Union Street, Mark Weston – who transitioned in 1936, and the link between Gus Honeybun and Plymouth’s gay community. The trail celebrates Plymouth’s LGBTQI+ heritage but also remembers the darker moments, including the brutal murder of Terry Sweet in 1995. Due to lockdown, Plymouth is launching this trail for local people (within walking distance) to enjoy. However, those who live in wider Plymouth can still use the app and its content from their homes or wait for local restrictions to lift.
