Gay Manchester

The gay scene in Manchester (home to corrie) is booming, Manchester and the wold famous Canal St offers something for everyone, whether you are there to visit friends or maybe you are thinking of moving, this is one gay city that will not disappoint.
gay manchester I first became aware of the Manchester scene at the age of 16, I along with many other gay teens, watched in secret Queer as Folk, the ground breaking Gay drama which inspired me to come out and accept my place in society. Roll on 6 years, I moved to the place, I spent my student years falling down Canal St with my student friends, and as a 31 year old man I got to experience the other side to gay Manchester.
Manchester is quite an open city nowadays, so try not to stick to the gay scene so much, try giving the other great places in the city a go, and I promise, you will not be disappointed!
Manchester is now the No1 northern destination, and only 2 hours from London, by train.
There are great Hotels and gay friendly B&B’s in the city, so why not book your train tickets to Manchester and come and experience one of the friendliest places in to county, and best, to be gay.
Highlights include:
Manchester Gay Pride, G-A-Y Bar, and the Architecture are not to be missed, go explore.
Watch out for:
Stag and Hen Parties, the outskirts of the city & people trying to make a fast buck.
