Gay Community Centre Bordesley Street
February 1976 to July 1978
The Gay Community Centre opened in mid 1976 in a row of Victorian shops at the junction of Allison Street and Bordesley Street in Digbeth.
The building consisted of three large four storey Victorian shop premises, all interconnected. The main entrance led to a large foyer, which provided access to the ground floor coffee bar and lounge.
It was set up by people who were involved in Campaign for Homosexual Equality, Gay Liberation Front, Friend, Switchboard and people from the commercial scene. The Centre provided office space for community groups and also a safe space to relax and socialise for both men and women.
