Gay Events in London 2021

Pride Month 2020 - London


Many events have been postponed or cancelled, and attractions, restaurants, pubs, theatres and other venues have temporarily closed. Check each venue directly for further details

This year’s big events in London may be falling away again because of Covid-19 (see: 2020!), but there’s still lots going on virtually, and lots planned for later in 2021.  We remain ever hopeful that events in London’s pubs and bars, including cabaret, club nights, performances, quizzes, bingo and more, roar back with a vengeance; and that we see the return of live theatre, concerts and performances.

Check out our Gay London Bars and Pubs listings for more info, and remember to contact the venue in advance.

FESTIVAL: BFI Flare LGBTQI+ Film Festival 2021
London’s biggest queer film festival is back in 2021.

But this time the BFI folks have had time to get organised, and we are excited about the program of movies of virtual events.
