Queer Noise – the hidden history of LGBT music & club culture in Manchester.
On Friday June 3rd, before the wonderful A QUEER REVUE! at Band on the Wall, Abigail Ward (Manchester District Music Archive) will give a FREE talk on LGBT music & club culture in Manchester, marking the launch of Manchester Histories Festival 2016.
The presentation will explore how queer music culture in Greater Manchester helped to redefine attitudes to sexuality across the city and beyond, featuring rarely seen images and footage courtesy of Manchester District Music Archive.
The talk will begin in the The Picturehouse next door to Band on the Wall at 8.30pm, and after that the main venue will open for DJ Greg Thorpe and some Manchester’s wildest bands: LIINES / Husk / ILL / Ménage à Trois. A Queer Revue! tickets here: https://bandonthewall.org/events/5051/
