Overview Gay Club Scene In St Petersburg

There is not a huge array of Gay and lesbian nightlife in this largely conservative Russian city but the options that are on offer should ensure you have a decadent and sexy night out. Unlike many other European city’s I have been to, they actually have an exclusively Lesbian joint called Tri El. Unfortunately St. Petersburg is not somewhere where it’s gay community feel comfortable enough to express their sexuality.

If caught flaunting your sexuality in public or rallying for gay rights then as we’ve seen as recently as March of 2012, you may end up behind bars after a ridiculous law which bans what the government deem to be ”Gay Propoganda”. You can enjoy the small gay clubbing scene in St. Petersburg, but  no waving of pink flags in the street unless you wish to antagonise local government and police.
