The Café at Outhouse is a welcoming space for users of the centre. People will often gather to meet before or after the groups they are involved in are meeting. Many individuals often just drop in for a coffee, a snack or sandwich to be in an easy-going, friendly and not overly-commercial atmosphere.
We are also aware that individuals may drop in who are not familiar or comfortable with gay ‘culture’ and are ‘feeling’ their way into being in LGBT spaces. There are various leaflets and publications, second hand books and other material to read that anyone can just pick up and spend an hour or two getting comfortable.
There is quite a range of staff in the Café as many of our volunteers do various hours there, keeping the Café open from 1pm until 9.30pm weekday evenings.
