Who are we?
Shetland LGBTQ is an independent local community group. It’s run by a small number of dedicated LGBTQ individuals in order to help and support both Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender individuals and couples, including supporting the families and friends of all LGBTQ folk throughout our islands.
The original LGBT group on Shetland has been active for many years on Facebook and continues to attract a small number of individuals who meet at Mareel Centre in Lerwick usually once a month.
Monthly Social Get-Togethers
Conveniently located in a secluded location in Lerwick with a private entrance, you can meet, socialise and chat with like-minded LGBTQ people within a secure environment at monthly get-togethers for a chat over a tea or coffee, play pool, darts or use the facilities computer.
Our next regular sheduled get-together is Friday, 25th January 2019 from 19:00-22:00

Meeting Friends at
Grampian Pride Village
After the Grampian Pride parade down Union Street, most of the participants assembled at The Pride Village that was a pleasant a 20 minute walk away.
The crowds were heaving as the bands started playing. Meeting Facebook friends at Grampian Pride for the very first time was one of the highlights of our visit to Pride Village!
Everyone on the ferry back and forth from Shetland and literally everyone we met in Aberdeen and at the Premier Inn was great. In fact, there was absolutely no problems at all for any LGBTQ folk. We had such lovely time and met so many nice people! Can’t wait for 2019!
