London has tons of gay and lesbians bars, spread all over town. Each area has it's own local gay bars. Here we list mostly the venues in Soho and Vauxhall which are most interesting for guys and girls visiting. In the old days bars and pubs had to close very early in the UK. Those times are no more, however still many places have to close before midnight due to their local license. On Sundays most places still close around 11, with only few exceptions. The London boys still go out very early in the evening, very different from south European countries.

By the end of that same year, more than homosexual men in the US had died as a result of the disease. As time passed and the panic grew, gay people were ushered further into the shadows by a homophobic press campaign. Terms like the "gay plague" were widely used, and people believed HIV could be transmitted by any kind of proximity to those with the virus.
