the GAY VILLAGE

the GAY VILLAGE

Manchester’s Gay Village is a unique and important part of our wonderful city's DNA. The roots of Manchester Pride - both as an organisation and with the Festival that we deliver each year - are firmly in the heart of our world-famous Gay Village.

The Gay Village is rich with culture and history. In the 1980s, bars and clubs began to pop up around Rochdale Canal, and in the 1990s, Manchester’s Gay Village began to build its reputation for being a welcoming, friendly and safe space for every member of the LGBTQ+ community. The four-day Gay Village Party proves year on year to be the ultimate street party celebration and is an important element of the Festival.

With the safety and wellbeing of the community at the heart of every decision we have made this year, we are unable to deliver a Gay Village Party in 2020. We are however committed to increasing our support of these Village businesses and would encourage anyone interested in paying a visit to check out the extensive list of these businesses below.  We support all Gay Village businesses in whatever they are able to offer customers over the Alternative Festival weekend and every other day too. They need our support more than ever.
