London GayScene is shrinking

London GayScene is shrinking


It is with regret we have bad news in regard to XXL'S home venue in Pulse. On Monday 24th June at 5pm the club had recieved with a 3 month eviction notice from the property developers and their new Landlords, Native Land.

Gay clubs are an essential part of the LGBTQI community so they were devastated the discovery that the favourite club, XXL, has been served an eviction notice to close by September 2019.

The proposal is to turn it into yet more luxury flats, no doubt left empty by corporate developers for most of the year.

Our gay scene in London is dying. Just 53 in LGBT+ venues in London were open in 2017 compared to 125 in 2006. But they can stop this.

The gay scene in London and outside must prevent thise closures .
A club closure means far more in the gay community than any other club closure. Clubs like XXL are our sanctuaries after an often exhausting week of existing in a straight world, life savers for those who are closeted and key places for sexual health promotion and outreach.

There is foreign money involved in London city and the gay/LGBTQI scene. The developer's backers are from Singapore and Malaysia, where LGBTQI lives are very taboo and even criminalised.

History of XXL club .

When XXL opened in 2000 there were 6 healthy LGBTQI+ venues. All have been closed down due to development. Southwark has the second highest population of LGBTQI+ people in London – XXL is the only remaining gay club there. Sadiq Khan is happy to take selfies at London Pride, but has refused to intervene on this matter, saying it's a legal issue.

London GayScene is shrinking by homophobic foreign bankers . This is no Brexit but Gayexit in London.
