There are quite a few such places.  I recently stumbled across a "Gay Gor" place (obviously not "By The Book") and there are a number of Male Dom/male sub BDSM places.  Just use search inworld, should be able to find plenty, even if BDSM and Gor aren't your thing.

My gosh, @rubyelena...practically the whole of SL is an LGBTQ+ friendly area.  Just steer clear of the people who immediately ask you to verify your gender with RL pics or voice, and you won't have too much trouble.

However, while most people are tolerant of others' preferences, not everyone shares them.  A simple search will turn up clubs and hangouts for gay, lesbian, and trans folks, if you are looking for a partner in pleasure.

I don't know if this helps as I've mostly sought out lesbian spaces in my short time in SL. But I like The Lesbian Teahouse and The Secret House.

The Lesbian Teahouse

I had not been there in ages (I don't usually seek out women only places) but I took an alt there recently.  It's a nice place with plenty of traffic but it's so quite.  I take it that most people are reading profiles and talking in IM.  I will have to find The Secret House now. Thank you for mentioning it, @Elaloy

The Secret House is expensive to join, but they seem quite active. I assume the expense is to keep out those who aren't really serious about being there. I am quiet and ridiculously shy which means I'm sitting in the Lesbian Teahouse reading profiles. I started cracking up when you said that lol. /me slaps self with a reminder to be more social

Be careful @ THouse you get banned for addressing horrific and abusive griefers while management loaf around doing nothing about it. 🤪

   This was my experience as well. I spent half an hour there. No one said anything in open chat.

Quiet lesbians that's a new one. The ones I know are quite loud and lively that's why I like them.

The Secret House is something I just tumbled to recently, but it looks very nice as a gathering spot.

Saturday evenings, Club Tryst is quite the hangout and they run late. I think they have other events during the week but I am not sure of the schedule.

Velvet Thorn is quite welcoming, but its primary focus in FemDom (not FinDom) within the BDSM community. They are charming folks (disclaimer: I take pics for their blog every Saturday evening, so I am biased) and worth a look.

In principle all of SL *should* be LGBTQ+ friendly, but this is sometimes not the case. Its a big grid and not everyone is as enthusiastic about everything as I would like. Thats their prerogative, I just try to avoid the mean ones.

If you ever encounter anyone who says they tolerate your existence, run very far away very fast.

   Snorts. I reluctantly tolerate mankind - I don't discriminate; I despise everyone equally!

You forget that I've actually met you face to face now, and know you're really just a sweet little teddy bear.

There are so many different types in SL i dont think that this really matters. But when you would love to find others, the keyword is your friend

There are groups to join to find out what is going on - Gay List and Gay Events Grid Wide and some popular hotspots like Spurt, Whiterock Beach and Atonement. I thought that on arrival in SL there was a gay greeter and a tour of gay spots . If you need any more info please IM me in world. xx

As an officially Gay Male type, I feel I can comment on gay life in SL currently.  

Good luck.

I can remember the days of yore when there were LBGTQ places where one could hang out and make friends.  I don't know of any that still exist; or at least, exist in the same way.  All that you find where there are actual people are either dance clubs or cruising spots.  In either case, everyone there is too busy in their pursuits to strike up a casual conversation.

In short, IMO, the gay scene in SL is rather dreary.
