WE WERE BORN IN THE 80S: A HISTORY OF THE JOYCE LAYLAND LGBT CENTRE, MANCHESTER
|Output Type:||Internet publication|
"When is our birthday?" asked Ali, the LGBT Centre manager. A simple enough question, or so I thought. The answer took four months of archival research, knee deep in 80s gay magazines and patchy council meeting minutes and records. I unearthed an intriguing story of how Manchester (potentially) became the first place in Europe to have an entirely publicly funded, purpose built centre for the gay community.
