What's On

This is our first Manchester Pride as LGBT Foundation (formerly The Lesbian & Gay Foundation) and we’re really excited to open up our building again this year to offer you a safe, friendly and welcoming community space.

If you want to take some time out from the hustle and bustle of Pride then the Foundation is here for you. Situated in the heart of Manchester’s world famous Gay Village, we can offer you a unique Pride experience where you can feel empowered to be yourself and even make some new friends along the way!

We’ve got lots of FREE events happening at the Foundation, but if you’re out and about in the Village then you’ll probably spot our staff and volunteers in their brightly coloured t-shirts - handing out information resources, safer sex packs and offering any advice or support that you may need.

Keep up to date with what's happening at LGBT Foundation over Pride by following us on Twitter @LGBTfdn using #WeAreLGBTfdn or on Facebook.
