In light of LGBT History Month, promoter Paul Cons is bringing nostalgia and vibrant tales of Manchester’s esteemed gay night, Flesh at the Hacienda, to Mosi. Famed for its political-sexual advertising slogans, Flesh was at the forefront of Manchester’s gay scene following its launch in 1991, bringing a host of pop’s iconic performers like Take That and Pet Shop Boys, as well as playing a forward role in the legal reforms of gay marriage and age of consent. Now settled in London, founder Paul Cons is eager to revive the flamboyant memories of these legendary nights with former punters and club scene regulars, so head down and explore the side of LGBT Manchester that extends beyond just Canal Street. And while you’re there, be sure to check out the Behind The Scene; Stories from Manchester’s LGBT Communities exhibition, as you sip on cocktails inspired by the Gay Traitor bar menu.
