Exploring Lesbian Madison, Wisconsin – Once upon a Journey

Exploring Lesbian Madison, Wisconsin - Once upon a Journey

What to Do and See in Lesbian Madison, Wisconsin

Wisconsin’s capital city, Madison—a.k.a. Mad City, Madtown, People’s Republic of Madison, Athens of the Midwest, Berkeley of the Midwest, Lake City, or the City of Four Lakes—is a very queer and lesbian-friendly destination.

It’s known for being a university town, and it’s true; young people flock to lesbian Madison, and the city has over 50% of people under 30. This makes the city very exciting and ever-changing (and did I mention GAY already?!).

Some more Mad fun facts:

  • UW-Madison was the first college in the country to offer a dairy major.
  • Only two US cities are built on an isthmus; this is one of them, nestled between Lake Mendota and Lake Monona.
  • Its famous farmers market on Capitol Square is the largest producer-only market in the U.S.
  • The (plastic) pink flamingo has been the official bird since 2009.
  • There’s always a park within a 10-minute walk, wherever you are in Madison.
  • Madison is renowned for being progressive, inclusive, open-minded, and remarkably queer-friendly!

No matter if you are a Madison local, it’s your first time visiting Mad Town, or it’s your tenth time in this fantastic city: this queer and lesbian Madison guide is for you!

Berlin Lesbian Bars & Nightlife – Our Taste for Life

Berlin Lesbian Bars & Nightlife - Our Taste for Life

Looking for the best Berlin lesbian bars & nightlife? You’re in the right place! In this guide, I share a list of the top queer and lesbian bars, clubs, parties, and events throughout the city. Lesbian bars are a bit like unicorns. We know they exist, but it’s almost impossible to find them.

Thankfully, Berlin is an exception. A bit like Lesbian London, the progressive city has been a queer hotspot since the early 1900s and continues to thrive. Of course, the lesbian scene is tame in comparison to what’s on offer for the boys. That said, there’s still plenty of fun to be had for lesbians in Berlin. So, let’s get to it and share our top lesbian bars, clubs, and parties in Berlin.

Berlin Lesbian Bars – Himmelreich Cafe

Located on the ever-popular Simon-Dach-Straße, Himmelreich Cafe is one of few lesbian bars in the party district of Friedrichshain. The bar has an open-door policy, and anybody is welcome regardless of their $exuality. However, it’s proclaimed as a ‘Cafe by day and gay lady oasis by night’. Certain nights are LGBTQ+ specific, such as Women’s Lounge on Tuesdays, which caters to a lesbian and FLINTA crowd.
