Village Voices - A History Of Gay Manchester

We take a trip down memory lane to the start of Manchester's gay scene - from bars and clubs behind closed doors, through the years with the music that influenced a generation, the struggle the community faced at the outbreak of the AIDS epidemic, the campaign against Section 28, and up to the legalisation of same-sex marriage.

Introduced by Martin Cooper.


DURATION: 1 hour
FIRST BROADCAST: 25/2/2013
