Join us for the next chapter of 'Love Is The Drug', every 3rd Thursday of the month, downstairs in the wonderful Tribeca. Prepare for an evening of performance where LGBT people and those curious, explore sex, drugs and love. Expect poetry, monologues, and sexual innuendos aplenty.

Since the event launched in London as 'Let's Talk About Gay Sex and Drugs' it has played an integral role to addressing the issues of loneliness, social isolation and drug and alcohol dependency and the need for compassion, love and empathy within our community. Love is The Drug is continuing to let those voices be heard in Manchester.

Thursday 20th September 7-9pm, Tribeca, 50 Sackville Street, Manchester M1 3WF

Here's some of our previous performers:

Adam ‘Beyonce’ Lowe is an award-winning writer, publisher and creative producer from Leeds, who now lives in Manchester.

Adam’s poetry ranges from traditional forms (sonnets, Sapphic verse, couplets) to more experimental forms, taking in classical and contemporary influences. He is as much inspired by ancient Mayan eschatology as by Manchester’s Polari revival, and writes from a unique standpoint as a mixed race, genderfluid young person living in the city.

Greg Thorpe is a writer, DJ, artist and curator in Manchester. He is programme manager for Superbia, the arts & culture programme from Manchester Pride, and works for Islington Mill, Salford's independent artist community. His ongoing work 'A mile of black paper' responds to the history of HIV/AIDS.
