Birmingham LGBT launches city’s first LGBT community guide

0

Birmingham LGBT has launched Birmingham’s first comprehensive, printed community guide. The handy pocket size thirty two page booklet, contains listings for all community groups, charities, networks, bars, clubs, shops and health services for LGBT people in Birmingham.
David Viney of Birmingham LGBT states “For years Birmingham has not been perceived as an LGBT city, but with
extensive physical regeneration, including the Gay Village area. And also events such as Pride and the SHOUT Cultural Festival, this cosmopolitan city is now as welcoming as any to LGBT people, and an exciting and vibrant place to be.”

Birmingham is home to around 60,000 LGBT citizens and as such has a thriving community and commercial scene. From nearly fifty voluntary and community groups, which are the lifeblood of the community, to over 15 bars and clubs in the Gay Village along Hurst Street. Birmingham offers something for all LGBT people.

Launched at Birmingham Pride the guide will be available at various outlets in the city including libraries, tourist offices, HGL and bars & clubs.
