|Gay and Lesbian London|
Like most capital cities, London has a vibrant and increasingly diverse gay and lesbian scene. There are several good sources for information on gay venues and events, for example Time Out or specifically gay publications such as the Pink Paper, Gay Times or Boyz.
Soho is the main centre for London's gay scene and is probably the first place to head if you want to sample London's gay night life. Old Compton Street is often regarded as the heart of this "gay village" and so is a good place to start.
Earl's Court was the centre of gay London in the 1970s, and the area has undergone somewhat of a gay renaissance in recent years. For example it is particularly popular for its several hotels that cater for gays and lesbians.
But other districts of London are also becoming increasingly well known for their gay scenes, for example Brixton, Camden Town and Hampstead.
It is worth noting that although in London homosexuality is generally well accepted it is still best to err on the side of caution. So, for example, it is probably best to keep gay or lesbian displays of affection within well-known gay areas.
