Our Ambassador Aisha Shuaibu discusses the growing LGBTQ+ community in the UK

“After homosexuality was legalized in 1967, Soho became a thriving queer district where people could feel a little more free.

There are also places like Dalston where lots of amazing quirky places like Dalston Superstore are starting to pop up. Places like Brixton in South London have a huge African and Caribbean cultural influence, and more queer events that reflect London’s multicultural communities also pop up there.

So when you look at the landscape of London, for example, our community just gravitates towards one area. Anyone can access these spaces and events, no matter what part of town they are in, as long as they know where to look. And that shows progress.”
