The Oxford Student reports on the launch of a ’PINK Card’ which enables cheap access to gay clubs and discounts on food and drink:
A discount scheme for the LGBT community was launched this week by Oxford Pride.
The ‘PINK Card’ was launched on Saturday and is designed to generate a profit that will be donated to the council-backed organisation, which supports LGBTQ life in the county.
Cards… give users discounted entry to gay nightclubs and reductions on food and drink.
Members of Oxford University LGBTQ society will be able to receive cards for free. The society has bought a number of the cards at a discounted rate to give to students.
LGBTQsoc president Sam Weinberg said: “The LGBTQsoc will receive the cards from the LGBT venues in town at a discount, and we will then issue them for free at one of our weekly Drinks events.”
He added: “I think it’s a very good idea. It’s a way to support the local LGBTQ community, and it will allow the LGBTQ venues to reach a wider audience by encouraging people who are regulars at one place to occasionally venture out to one of the other venues. And of course I personally believe Oxford Pride does a great job – I’m glad to see them benefit from this.”
