Southopia has been renamed as The Chocolate Lounge
You have to pay a day membership (£1 I think), men as guests of women only and drinks aren't cheap for the area.
Upside - music and comedy nights are much better quality than many other similar sized pubs, I guess they vet the acts in advance.
You might want to note that they don't take cards (well, debit cards at least, maybe they do credit cards)
Have fun if you go.
If you are near Borough Tube / London Bridge, you'll find most (of not all?) of the pubs are pretty gay friendly. The Gladstone
on Lant Street
used to be gay, and you may see it listed as such, but it no longer is. I still see a few male couples in there who I would guess are gay. (For those who saw the revolting White Cube look at the GLadstone, that's gone and been replaced with a red wall, dark wood suburban home with pretensions of wealth look - not very interesting but certainly a bit more relaxing).
