A little about us...

We're a queer community space, events space and shop based in Cardiff - stocking over 18 local LGBT+ businesses.

Starting as a pop-up shop in June 2021, we've become one of South Wales most recognisable Queer brands. The best part - all profits go towards supporting LGBTQ+ community projects.

TIN led, managed and owned

Almost exclusively operated by trans / intersex / non binary community members, The Queer Emporium is a home for minority genders and strives to create an affirming safe space with needed events and workshops for the community.

Refreshments and food

Locally sourced, plant based and made by LGBTQ+ folks, our drinks and cakes are everything your homophobic Great Aunt would fear. Try our famous BisexualiTea (that changes colour) or The Camp Disco Diva (a rose and hibiscus lemonade with glitter).


Access to The Queer Emporium can be via our shop front entrance, which includes a step or via our side entrance, which is level with the ground. There is also a disabled toilet on site. You can find out how to get to us on the Find Us page.
