I usually go there for a stroll with friends or even alone as I love getting lost there in the little streets admire the street art and the liberation to express yourself however you want. Or walk by the notorious red light district also known as the sex district which is kind of quiet during the day.
But Soho itself is always full of life at any time of the day and that's another reason i love it, as a small town girl i kind of sick of the quiet places, I like places that are lively and by that I don't mean the tube but that's another story.
As a classic club kid I spent most of my early 20s in random clubs in Soho wearing whatever came into my mind whether that is a feathery top and glitter everywhere or just jeans for the days that I couldn't be bothered, I embraced the wild child inside me to the top, and every time I walk by those streets I get random giggles as I remembered things I done with my friends.
The last few years Soho is in danger of being shut down by gentrification. Every month there is a new threat to knock out another element, many iconic venues have been shut down within the last five years such as Madam Jojos, Astoria, 12Bar and more. LGBT activists try to protest against but who has a voice against big companies that want to make millions. Soho is trademark part of London not just for the LGBT community but for all Londoners. London is changing right before our very nice and some of the changes are not always good.
What do you think gentrification?
