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surrounding the actual motives behind the ‘queer trans bloc’, this video has ‘retired’ into the archives and I have withdrawn permission to show or distribute it.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.

Pink tank at Manchester Pride 2007 (video)

Watch the video here.

A pink tank featured in the 2007 Manchester Pride parade. Later I saw it speeding down Oxford Road, still with trans girls on-board, and pulling up at the traffic lights. Which was even funnier.
