Celebrating women in LGBT History - Walk. Talk. Feast.
Sun 26 February 2017, 16:00 – 20:00 GMT
Join us for a three-part celebration of women's role within LGBT History in Manchester and beyond.
On Sunday 26th February we will start our celebration at 4pm outside the Town Hall from where you will be guided through the city finding out about the history of Europe’s first LGBT+ Centre here in Manchester, which opened in 1988. More information about the walking tour can be found here
On arrival at the LGBT+ Centre at approximately 5:15pm you will begin the first of a six-course veggie/vegan tasting menu prepared by volunteers from Sidney St. Café, which is a not-for-profit community cafe. All income is used to support work with lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people carried out at The LGBT+ Centre. For those not wishing to join the history walk, please meet at 5:15pm at The LGBT+ Centre.
During the meal there will be an input from Dr Kate McNicholas-Smith looking at lesbian and bisexual in/visibility through the period in history since the decriminalisation of (male) homosexuality in 1967. Kate's current research is concerned with examining lesbian visibility on television and within wider media cultures. Find out more about Kate here
It is sure to be an uplifting and insightful event due to end at around 8pm. Places are strictly limited and are expected to sell out fast.
Please be prepared and clothed for all weather during the walking tour.
Please notify us of any dietary requirements. The LGBT+ Centre is a dry space and no alcohol is permited or will be served.
