Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton

found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything
but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street;
even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and
art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The
