queer

Oslo is a capital of diversity and acceptance. Gays, heterosexuals and lesbians are all a part of the street scene. In Oslo you can move freely and hold hands with whomever you want.

bar & cafés

There aren’t many bars and nightclubs for the queer crowd in Oslo. Almost every year a new bar opens, just to shut down after a few months. It can seem like the capital isn’t big enough for more than a couple of places. But there are some existing gay bars and nightclubs, and we’ve singled out the stayers.
