Overview Gay Club Scene In Oslo

iOslo is a charming little city which has a population of just over 600,000. They do not have a particularly big Gay scene compared to other European cities but there are still a few offerings. There are laid back and relaxed bars, vibrant nightclubs and a couple of Sauna’s which are an idyllic setting for a spot of ”Cruising”. Norway is a forward thinking country which  became only the second country in the world to legalize Gay and Lesbian partnerships. In 2009 Norway made history again  by ensuring  Marriage equality was the same for Gay/Lesbian couples as it was for heterosexual marriages. You are unlikely to come across prejudice in Oslo but there is not a plethora of nightlife options available to gay tourists. Here are a few for you to take a look at.
