London Lesbian Night Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary With Special Birthday Bash

In an age where lesbian bars and clubs all across the world are closing their doors, it is great to report that one event in London is thriving.

After enjoying a whole decade of exclusive lesbian parties in elite member’s clubs across the capital, Mint is celebrating it’s 10 year anniversary at one of the biggest and chicest members venues in London – the iconic Century Club.

Back when we started out, it was almost unheard of to take over plush members clubs and fill them with girl-loving girls, yet that’s exactly what we did – making history with our epic member house parties.”

Mint’s 10 year birthday bash promises to be a bigger, badder and all round more fabulous version of those renowned Soho House nights we all know and love.

So get your favourite ladies together and prepare to spend your Sunday dancing, gorging on artisan barbecued burgers and downing exquisite cocktails.


So London ladies, make sure you arrive early and indulge in one hell of a party. Enjoy some breathtaking London skyline from the largest roof terrace in Soho, whilst you dance to Ibiza-esque deep house and disco brought to you by Caz Coronel, DJ Philly, Yvette Lindquist and a host of other talented female DJs to be announced over the coming weeks.


Doors open at 2pm and close at 11pm so you can be tucked up in bed ready for work on Monday – or be naughty and take a well earned duvet day off…

Make sure you nab your tickets here or from Muse Soho at 23 Frith St, London W1D 4RR.

Tickets are £15 or indulge in the gourmet BBQ on the roof including party entry for £25 and you’ll probably have first pickings at the luxurious sofas and tables on the roof – perfect for those intimate chats (hint hint). Those indulging in the BBQ will need to purchase the special BBQ ticket by 18th September – take a look at whats on offer below.

2015 Sees Surge In Homophobic Attacks In London

According to data from the Metropolitan police, homophobic crimes have surged by nearly a third in London in the past year.

The data comes from the force’s latest annual crime figures – which allow types of reports to be broken down by borough and by crime type.

Overall, homophobic crime has risen, year on year, 29.3% in the capital. However this may be a result of more reports of crimes, however it does signify a worrying trend.

Racist, anti-Semitic and Islamophobic attacks all also saw a rise – though the number of homophobic incidents recorded was nearly double those of Islamophobic crimes, and three times the number of anti-Semitic crimes.

The Met states:

A Homophobic Offence is any offence which is perceived to be homophobic by the victim or any other person, that is intended to impact upon those known or perceived to be lesbian, gay, or bisexual.”

Westminster and Vauxhall, two of London’s main LGBT areas have been revealed as having the most homophobic hate crimes reported.

Both locations are known to home the majority of London’s LGBTI spaces. Crimes in Westminster have soared 23% while in Lambeth, which homes Vauxhall’s gay scene, anti-gay crimes have risen 25%.

When Hackney, which homes another important LGBTI centre (Shoreditch) is included in the number of crimes reported up to July 2015 rises to 406 – over 1 crime per day.

Of course these figures do not reflect the true scale of the problem – as many crimes against LGBTI’s go unreported. Research from University of Leicester’s Centre for Hate Studies reveals that 88 per cent of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people had experienced some form of hate incident and that over 35,000 of these crimes go unreported across the UK.

Shockingly some boroughs have seen increases of up to 217% (Bromley) and 185% in Croydon. Almost every borough has seen an increase of anti-gay crimes.
