Brighton LGBTQ Community is "an Escape"


Brighton is a “safe haven” for LGBTQIA people. Sometimes described as Britain’s version of San Francisco, there is a new study that has been published by the University of Brighton which backs up this folkloric knowledge. Led by Doctor Zoe Boden-Stuwart, the two year project found that LGBTQIA people often moved to the city on the grounds of its amenities, its gay friendly venues, media, and general culture. Pink News takes up the story, saying that “Participants described the move as “liberating,” adding that the city felt like “a place to escape,” while others said there was a feeling of “safety and connection” due to the increased “concentration of gay, lesbian, and queer people” in the city.”. On the other hand, it is noted that there are still issues with homophobia, biphobia and transphobia in Brighton and that work needs to be done by the community and its allies.
