An Edinburgh local has decided to open the first-ever bar for lesbians and queer women. While the capital already has bars for the LGBTQI+ community, Emily Frood, 23, wants to open the first-ever bar specifically for the lesbian community. Emily, who identifies as a non-binary trans lesbian, announced on social media that they were quitting their master’s degree at Queen Margaret University (QMU) in Edinburgh to fulfill the dream. The post read: “I’ve finally decided that I am actually going to found Edinburgh’s first lesbian bar. QMU helped me grow so much with my undergrad but I know what I want to do now. Wish me luck.” The popular announcement got over a thousand likes with Emily receiving an outpouring of support for the idea. Emily told Pink News how the bar is now in the ‘early planning stages’ with the local hoping to raise funds from a crowdfunding campaign.
