Brighton is sometimes said to be Britain's LGBTQ capital. The city is known for being inclusive, so it's no surprise that it has the highest proportion of same sex households in the country. People are drawn here throughout the year for the varied nightlife, but the city really comes alive for its renowned Pride each summer. Aside from the gay scene, there's plenty of vegetarian and vegan cafes, hipster coffee shops and clothes stores, and piercing parlours, so you can live your best queer life in the presence of a diverse and open crowd.
