Can I join The Queer Emporium?

You can also check out our TQE Friends page to see what else there is to explore in Cardiff and the surrounding areas!

If you're looking for jobs, we post on this page and on our socials when we a position becomes available! 

Do you serve alcohol?

We do but only after 4pm! As we're a space with many under 18s we prioritise soft drinks and don't have alcohol on display unless there is a special event on. We'd suggest trying our famous BisexualiTea which can be soft or made with alcohol!

Are you a non profit?

Yes! What does that mean? It means after everyone has been paid, our overheads have been covered any surplus is put back into Community Events, developing the space and organisation. We're a registered Social Enterprise too!
