outnorthwest issue 117
Ten years ago - TEN! - Manchester hosted EuroPride, and it just so happens that was also when The LGF launched outnorthwest.
So this issue see’s us reach the grand old age of 10, and I just want to thank everyone who has supported us over the years. For any magazine to survive ten years is a remarkable feat, and we really couldn’t have done it without your support, and the support of every venue that carries us. Onwards and upwards!
No time for birthday celebrations though, not when we have Manchester Pride on the horizon! Once again, outnorthwest is an official media partner for Manchester Pride, which means we can bring you the latest, official up-to-date news and interviews. In this issue we speak to Dan Gillespie-Sells, lead singer of The Feeling who are headlining Manchester Pride’s Main Stage. We also go straight to the top and interview John Stewart, Chief Executive. Whether this is your tenth Manchester Pride or your first, we hope you have a fantastic, safe time. Don’t forget to pop in to The LGF - our doors are open all through The Big Weekend.
Each year, we produce an Annual Review highlighting the key work that The LGF has undertaken during the previous year. This is a summarised version of our Annual Report, and is designed to be more community friendly. We’ll be publishing our Annual Review 2012/13 in the next issue of outnorthwest, but in the meantime,we’ll also be uploading it to our website mid-August. Check out www.lgf.org.uk/about-us.
Thank you again for your continued support of outnorthwest and The Lesbian & Gay Foundation.
