The LGBT community in Coventry is set to welcome back a gay club set to open this weekend.
A gay club in Coventry called Rainbows is set to relaunch this weekend after closing for extensive refurbishment. The club in Short Street will be open from midday on Friday until 4pm to give customers a chance to see the new look before fully opening this weekend.
The club first opened in May 1997.
Speaking to the Coventry Telegraph Manager Gary Joines said:
YOUR SUPPORT MEANS EVERYTHING
Help us deliver unique, usable and reliable journalism that supports the gay, bisexual and curious community of the United Kingdom. Can you help protect LGBT+ media? Publishers like us have come under severe threat by the likes of Google and Facebook. The problem is that advertisers are choosing to put their money with them, rather than with niche publishers like us. Our goal is to eliminate banner ads altogether on site and we can do that if you could pledge us a tiny amount each month. We're asking our readers to pledge just £1 per month, more if you're feeling swanky. You can stop payment at any time. It's quick and easy to sign up and you'll only have to do it once.

“Rainbows has been closed for some essential building work.
“As a result, we now have a brand new upstairs bar area, and cloakroom. The downstairs bar area has been redecorated giving it a brighter, more modern feel.
“We’ve also done some work to the stair case and toilets giving them a new look.
“The whole venue looks lighter, brighter and fresher – giving it a whole new lease of life!”
