Are you gay, lesbian, bi or trans? New to Sheffield? Maybe you are moving here to study or to work? Either way, you might be wondering where your fellow community members are hanging out, where to go for support and where to party. Let us guide you to Sheffield’s LGBT+ life.



Yorkshire’s biggest LGBT night out and a Sheffield classic, this monthly night is held at the university of Sheffield’s student union but welcomes people of all ages, regardless of whether you are a student or not – and the crowd is mixed. Expect to find themed parties, the latest chart hits, great drinks deals and a fun night out all in a place that won’t judge and where you can be 100% yourself.


A Sheffield institution, this club at the bottom of The Moor is known for its late opening times (they also serve breakfast?), its dance floor cage (yes, you’ll find yourself in it) and no frills vibe. Sheffield has seen many gay bars come and go but Dempsey’s and Climax have remained a constant. Plus they serve Lambrini bottles with straws so frankly, what is there not to love?


Sheffield’s latest addition to the gay scene, OMG is located on the party stretch that is West Street and a welcome addition to the city centre. With a big dance floor and a stage at the heart of the club you’ll find yourself dancing to pop and chart tunes. They also do a cabaret night!
