Embracing all lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender life, Manchester is one of the world’s most gay-friendly cities. Situated in the North of England, just two hours from London, it is vibrant, dynamic and a pioneer of free and open expression of sexuality. This stylish, cosmopolitan city offers the very best in arts & culture, nightlife, food and drink, shopping and more!
Each year at the end of August, the Manchester Pride festival takes over the Gay Village for the Big Weekend, 72 hours of partying, celebration, events, arts and culture.
