LGBTQ community in Pakistan has been advocating for acceptance and rights, despite facing challenges amid conservative societal attitudes and legal restrictions, and now the office of Deputy Commissioner Abbottabad has been approached for a gay club. A formal request for a No Objection Certificate (NOC) has been made to establish a gay club under name of ‘Lorenzo Gay Club’ in the garrison city of Abbottabad. The application submitted by Preetum Giani called for a safe space for individuals of all gays to socialize, with strict rules against any sexual activities in the club. It said” The club would constitute a great practical convenience and resource for many homosexual, bisexual, and even some heterosexual people residing in Abbottabad in particular, and in other parts of the country in general. Lorenzo Gay Club would basically be just a venue where gay people could freely meet, converse with, and share light refreshments with other gay people; it WOULD NOT be a Place to engage in gay for non-gay sex other than kissing.”
