LGBT culture in Liverpool
Research commissioned by the North West Regional Development Agency approximated that there were around 94, LGBT persons living in the city's metropolitan area by mid  - equivalent to the GLB population of San Francisco ,  making it the single largest minority group on Merseyside. The poll was taken by the gay community in major hubs around the world. As the location of Britain's first and only official gay quarter , the only LGBT combined arts organisation in the North of England, the UK's most gay friendly university and one of Europe's largest free LGBT Pride festivals ,      life in modern Liverpool allows many more liberties for gays and lesbians than it ever did. However, up until quite recently the city was often thought of as a 'lesser gay-friendly' destination and compared negatively in comparison to other metropolitan areas of similar size and stature. The history of gay Liverpool is one full of contrasts and contradictions from larger than life characters, legendary gay clubs and relative tolerance, to the anonymous and underground subculture of cottaging , repression and outright persecution.
