Whatever your sexuality, gender and tastes, from Vauxhall to Dalston, genderqueer discos to bear pubs, and cheap shots to sober nights, there are events all over, with something, or someone, for almost everyone.

Newcomers should follow the regulars in to gain entry.Notably, Unskinny Bop and Dancing On My Own are events where girls, boys and trans* or genderqueer people of all shapes and sizes will unfailingly fill the dancefloor from start to finish (they recommend you bring a towel).A new alcohol-free queer night called Choose Yr Own Adventure will be starting in west London in April, offering a welcome alternative to booze-drenched nights out.Then there’s the Vauxhall scene, also known as Voho, for lovers of late nights and/or cabaret, who are an older, more experienced crowd than their Soho counterparts.The age-old Royal Vauxhall Tavern pub was the birthplace of this scene and hosts Amy Lamé’s night, Duckie, and queer performance night Bar Wotever, where all binary ideas about gender should be left at the door.
