  1. Manchester Pride is one of the UK’s largest events of LGBT+ celebration and awareness, and this year I will share with you my four days and nights of activities and entertainment. After a long Saturday, it was time to let our bodies recuperate in bed, which explains why we didn’t get back in to The Village until 3:30pm on Sunday afternoon. After the drink in Via we decided to try Jasmine Restaurant for food, which was … erm … a bit of a mediocre affair. To be fair to them, they’d only opened for business a few days earlier, meaning Pride was their ultimate baptism of fire. Then it was the well-trodden circuit of Velvet, One Canal Street, Napoleons*, The Goose, and New York New York. (*Note to self and others: Since being taken over several months ago, Napoleons has become a shadow of its former self, with what was up to three floors for the LGBTQ+ community now reduced to barely one). Nightcaps were had in On Bar. Julie and I chatted to a couple and their teenage son. As a young gay lad this was his first Pride, and he was clearly enjoying himself. Perhaps the innocence of youth – or more likely the alcohol – subdued his inhibitions enough for him to start asking questions about T-Girl’s “tucking”. I politely told him such conversations aren’t normally held in public bars, and encouraged him to research online. After a long and enjoyable chat with all of them, it was time for Julie and I to head home.

  5. Manchester Pride is one of the UK’s largest events of LGBT+ celebration and awareness, and this year I will share with you my four days and nights of activities and entertainment. We were both up and out of bed by 9am. Luckily, I started to get ready by 11am, because the two-hour long Pride parade began to pass us shortly after 1pm with me just about finished and ready. And what a Parade - it must have been about 2 miles long. With that done, Julie and I were in The Village meandering about the stalls on Chorlton Street before having a drink in (the newly established) Jasmine Restaurant. Next was Lock 87, followed by the Thompson Arms. The extensive queues for the toilets in the Thompson Arms promoted Julie and I to briefly return to the apartment for some nose-powdering. After the parade, it’s typical to have 100,000+ people in an area of about a quarter square mile, so the queues for the bathroom can be daunting. Back in The Village we started at The Lodge, followed by Velvet, One Canal Street, and finally The Goose. On the way home we called in at our local Spar (for our colonial cousins, that's a UK chain of small-to-medium supermarkets) for some essential supplies, and then we were back in the apartment.
