Places to go and further resources

Derby is a relatively small and safe city. It is also relatively accepting and there isn't a large amount of reported homophobic or transphobic violence, but as with any city you should be careful.

For an up-to-date list of gay friendly venues in Derby and Buxton contact: Derbyshire Friend. Derbyshire Friend is a service run by and for gender and sexual minorities (GSM) living in Derby and Derbyshire. They provide advice, information and support as well as organising social occasions within the City.

The University also has an Equality and Diversity site, which links to information about events such as LGBT History Month and IDAHO (International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia)
