Are queer night clubs disappearing – or are we experiencing a revival?

We hear a lot about how gay bars and LGBT spaces are closing. Statistically, venues are on the decline. But what about queer spaces? From York to Wales, queer activists all over the country are setting up their own nights – free from mental health stigma, transphobia and without booze. Why? Because when something doesn't exist for queers, queers make it happen. We investigate the cultural queer nightclub revolution going on in the UK.
