Brighton holds the title of the unofficial gay capital of the UK, with LGBT history having been recorded in this city since the 1800s. The biggest Pride event anywhere in the United Kingdom is held here every August, and it attracts over 150,000 people annually. As you might expect, Brighton has no shortage of gay bars, clubs, cafes, shops and restaurants, with most being clustered in Kemptown in St James’ Street. The Queens Arms is one of the best known venues in the city, hosting drag acts and karaoke on a regular basis. For those who prefer traditional clubbing, Club Revenge is as big and famous as it gets. As the biggest and best known gay club in the south of England, it has stood close to the Palace Pier for a quarter of a century.
