    I'm considering Portsmouth Uni and was wondering what the LGBT scene there is like? Also is the LGBT society any good, what kinds of things do you do? Thank you

    There's a very good LGBT society here at the UoP student union! https://membership.upsu.net/group/lgbt-society

    I'm starting at portsmouth this year (so can't comment yet on the society) but I'm from the area originally though. LGBT in the area is kinda small but starting to pick up from what I gather. There is a gay bar called HB near the uni studenty area but I've not been as it's not really my scene. Portsmouth pride happens annually on Southsea Common. We're also not far about an 1hr /1hr 20 from both Southampton and Brighton as well which is nice.

    Other stuff of note decent amount of people in the community so apps like Tinder, Grindr, POF are all healthy. As for general acceptance depends on where you go in Portsmouth I guess. Some parts can be rough and Portsmouth has got very passionate football fans which can cause issue, but equally I've not really had any problems either get the odd person saying something I guess.
