LGBTQ+ safe spaces that don’t exclusively place you to drink alcohol are a rarity. This has been a topic of discussion in the LGBTQ+ community ever since safe spaces started popping up. Some queer people are underage and can’t drink but they still need safe spaces to exist and fully be themselves.
Are there any LGBTQ+ Cafe's in Edinburgh?
Kafe Kweer is a Queer Café that opened up in Edinburgh over lockdown, it’s a cafe that is openly a safe space for LGBTQ+ individuals and serves affordable and tasty food and drinks. The staff is friendly and the building’s interior design is filled with pride flags galore. Overall the Café just has a very cosy and welcoming atmosphere and is a great place to go if you are looking for a bite to eat and is also a great place to go if you are a queer person looking for a sober safe space. It’s also a place that if you are a disabled queer person might be less of a sensory overload as no loud music is playing and there are no drunk people.
