First of all try to ignore the previous unhelpful posts, Lewes is on the whole a fairly tolerant town The snowdrop is a nice pub as is kings head. To be honest it is a bit embarrassing defending my lovely town in the face of the small minority of bigoted a holes. Welcome it really is a unique special place.

Tarquin, welcome to Lewes. It's a very liberal, easygoing town, despite the few bigots that this forum seems to attract. Hang out, make friends and be yourself. You'll do just fine.

There are no specific gay pubs/clubs in Lewes, Tarquin. In fact you won't find much nightlife at all apart from a few pubs, a few pub gigs etc.

There is no real gay themed nighlife in lewes. The snowdrop is a very friendly pub. Lewes on the whole is quite liberal, though you might find there are quite a few big fish in a small pond/small minded folk to ignore.
If u like things like walks and mountain biking then join outdoorlads they have quite a lot of stuff happening in and around lewes.

There are no specific "Gay bars" in Lewes but in my experience, every pub in town is gay friendly. I certainly don't remember any hostility towards gay people in a pub in Lewes, other than the occasional, very rare bit of schoolyard abuse like you've seen here and that's almost certainly comes from people deep in the closet and in denial about their own sexuality.
I believe according to the last census, Lewes is in the top 10 gay towns in the country as a percentage of total population, primarily due to house prices in Brighton and older people getting bored of the Brighton scene and looking for something a bit calmer out in the countryside.

I can't believe that people fall for 'tarquin's threads. Its a shame, as the obvious result will be that people won't reply to threads that aren't shams as they'll suspect that they are started as a 'joke' (only funny to 'tarquin' sadly). Is that what you want 'tarquin'? No forum at all?
Roll on registration.

I don't always agree with the central tenets of Freudian psychology, except when it comes to overcompensation. Now, I'm off to stitch my sides back up.

Its funny when you read this thread and you see a post that says -
"Posts like this really annoy me. In this age of equality, why seek out specific places to go, we're all the same!!! "
Then you read that
"Just stop talking about gays .We all know it not Normal . "
then is it any wonder that gay guys seek out specific places ???
And then you read that the OP has "fished us in"........ how utterly unevolved and backward our little town is................. the human race continues to disappoint me pretty much every day......

Lewes is, for a small town, exceptionally tolerant and enlightened. There is a significant gay community, both male and, particularly, female. One of the most popular pubs in town (among all sections of society) is run by a gay couple. Unfortuantely the two or three puerile homophobes in town appear to live here, although despite all their efforts they can't manage to be vaguely funny or original.
Incidentally I love the implicit assertion ('targuin' etc) that only the upper middle classes (particularly DFL types) can be gay. Of course no true born and bred Lewesian could ever be homosexual. It's all a bit like the way certain African dictators claim that there's no gay activity in their country except that caused by Western influences.
