Share your memories and experiences of Manchester's Gay Village

12 Feb 2021

Manchester Village Stories is a University research project focused on your stories and experiences

Manchester’s LGBTQ+ Village has, for generations, functioned as a space where people can gather to express diverse sexual and gendered identities away from the glare of public opinion. 

The researchers are interested in learning about:

  • Your experiences of Manchester’s Gay Village
  • Why and how the Village is important for you as an LGBTQ+ space
  • If, and how, your everyday experiences and feelings about the Village have changed over time
  • How you think the Village should look in the future

All are welcome to participate, but the researchers are particularly interested in hearing the stories and experiences of older LGBTQ+ people.

This research will help to inform policy about urban development in Manchester.
