The Proud Trust
The Joyce Layland LGBT Centre, 49-51 Sidney Street, M1 7HB Manchester, United Kingdom
In 1986 Manchester Police's Chief Constable James Anderton refered to the LGBT community and the emegring HIV/Aids crisis as ‘swirling about in a human cesspit of their own making’. Meanwhile a determined group of LGBT+ activists were campiaging hard, and two years later Manchster's dedicated 'gay centre' built and was opened.
Come and join us as we celebrate 30 Years since the LGBT+ Centre opened, amidst state and institutional homophobia. This event takes place on the International Day Against Homophobis, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT).
We will be making a banner and posters to decorate our club night and fundraiser in November, based on material from the LGBT+ Centre archive.
The event is free but please book on! This event is for LGBT+ people of all ages and abilities, and will be facilitated by expereinced community artists.
The LGBT+ Centre is a level access building with an accessible toilet, single cubicles and urinals.
Funded by Spirit of Manchester, mini-grant.
Only registered users may comment.
