Thinking of buying a Manchester Pride 2016 wristband? Some very important information…

The streets of the gay village will be open to everyone during Manchester Pride this year, whether they pay or not, and we think Sackville Park will be too.

This is because Manchester Pride has acted unlawfully since 2003 in closing the streets to pedestrians who didn’t pay. In fact, blocking members of the public who were on foot was probably a criminal offence. Manchester City Council had unlawfully included pedestrians in its traffic order for the event and last year they had to rewrite it to remove this. (more…)

BBC Archive: the Gay Rights Movement Collection

BBC Archive page about the gay rights movementThe BBC Archive has put together a terrific page with 30 audio and video recordings about the ‘gay rights’ movement. They span more than 40 years — from 1957 to 2009.

Quite a number are complete programmes that are more than 25 minutes long.

What a great resource.

LGBT History Month: the 1960s BBC TV series Robinson Crusoe, Lee Payant and Gordon Heath

It’s Lesbian Gay Bisexual Trans History Month.

If you grew up in Britain in the 1960s or 1970s then you probably remember the 13-part series Robinson Crusoe on BBC Television. This French production was shown many times between 1965 and the early 1980s, often during school holidays.

Featuring handsome Robert Hoffman, people remember the programme for the music, which was composed by Robert Mellin and Gian-Pero Reverberi, and for the distinctive dubbed English language narration. However most would be hard-pressed to name the actor who spoke those words and even fewer know of the love story behind the screen credit.

Reclaim the Night march, Manchester

UPDATE (October 2008): due to controversy surrounding the actual motives behind the ‘queer trans bloc’, this video has ‘retired’ into the archives and I have withdrawn permission to show or distribute it. On a personal note, I filmed this event with the best of intentions: to report the march and record it for posterity.

Original text description:

Saturday 1 March 2008, The Reclaim the Night march set off from Manchester University on Sackville Street. Travelled along Oxford Road, Portland Street and through the gay village. Despite torrential rain everyone was in good spirits.
