A group of different LGBTQ+ people sit together talking and conversing outside in a modern courtyard. Many ethnicities, gender identities and ages can be seen.


There’s room for everyone in the LGBTQ+ community under our amazing rainbow umbrella. If you need a place to find your community and achieve queer hope and joy, look no further.

LGBT Foundation is here for all our amazing communities under the LGBTQ+ umbrella. We’re also proud to be developing best practices within healthcare and research.

Every day, we work to ensure our communities feel included in all aspects of their lives. All year round we run awesome events and workshops, aimed at providing exciting and joyful opportunities for LGBTQ+ people from many different communities to explore and celebrate their identities.

Projects that bring communities together!

We are a lead partner in the Greater Manchester LGBTQ+ Arts and Culture Network, providing support, training and awareness for cultural organisations in delivering events for and with LGBTQ+ artists and audiences.

The Greater Manchester LGBTQ+ Community Fund gives financial support to groups addressing the unique needs and challenges faced by LGBTQ+ communities and raising awareness of HIV and tackling HIV stigma.

Our Angels keep you safe when out and about in Manchester’s Gay Village and at other Queer events, making sure your night is full of queer joy. And if it isn’t, they’re there to help.

The Village Heroes keep Manchester’s historic Gay Village clean, ensuring it serves as a social and community space which is safe and welcoming for all.
