Manchester Penetrated [Psycho-Sexual Geography and Sex-Mapping]

14th November 2017, Manchester

Event Full Details:

What was it like coming out in Manchester or Salford? How was your first visit to the Village? Ever fuck one or more guys down the canal? Was your first Pride everything you hoped it could be or did it find you confused and disappointed? What did the sky look like in the morning after you first merged from a sauna? What spaces, places and structures in the city instantly remind you of a lover from back in the day? How has the Village and the city changed over the years and has this changed the sex you have? Has Grindr changed how you use the city and do you move through and experience the city differently when using hook-up apps?

Manchester Penetrated is a radical creative, artistic and explorative initiative that seeks to map of sexual experiences, our most intimate stories of love and sex, and our personal sexual narratives onto the spaces and places of the city. Using cameras, sound recorders, sketch pads, note-books, musical instruments and our own voices we will walk the city reflecting on and recording some of the sexual experiences that have shaped our understanding of our sexual identity and the place we live.

The project is broken up into four different sessions, beginning with a mapping/planning session on the 14th of November at 7pm @ The Backdoor, Bar Pop in the Village. It is followed by two separate walks through the city - one during the day, one in the darkest hours of the night- that will creatively and collaboratively explore different aspects of our sexual narratives.

As Manchester Penetrated is a collective initiative, the where, when and what we do of these sessions will be generated by the men who participate in the project. A final session in the New Year will review what we’ve created and experience and decide what we will do with all this.

If you are interested in exploring your sex life, your sexual identity and your city from a radical new perspective, if you want to share the unique self that is you and learn from other men’s sexual experiences, please contact us on men@lgbt.foundation or call us on 0345 3 30 30 30

Let’s get walking and talking about sex and our city.

These spaces are for anyone who self-identifies as a gay, bisexual or questioning man*. We'll be covering a range of topics from sex and pleasure through to wellbeing and mindfulness.

This is great opportunity to share your thoughts, explore new topics and meet new people in a safe and fun environment.

We're always looking to tailor our workshop programme around your needs, so if you have any suggestions please use the form at the bottom of the page.

*Men’s Spaces are for anyone who self-identifies as a gay, bisexual or questioning man. Our services for men are open to anyone who self-identifies as a man, some or all of the time.
