Liverpool to Promote Gay Village to Gay/Lesbian Travelers

Published Date Author: , February 24th, 2011

Liverpool is to promote and develop its gay quarter to cash in on the so-called ‘pink pound’. The council has hired a planning consultancy to look at how the city can be marketed as a worldwide tourist destination for gay travellers.

Liverpool’s gay quarter centres around Stanley Street and pubs and bars have sprung up in the last decade and urban planning consultancy Feria Urbanism has been asked to come up with a vision towards making the gay scene one of the best in the country.

Cllr Nick Small, cabinet member for employment and skills, told the Liverpool Daily Post: “The area around Stanley Street has developed over time to be the city’s gay quarter although there are many businesses there which cater for all communities. We want Liverpool to be known as an inclusive city.”
