Queer Noise: The History of LGBT+ Music and Club Culture in Manchester at People’s History Museum, City Centre, 1 July–10 September 2017, free entry - Visit now

Part of the People’s History Museum’s Never Going Underground season, a year-long programme exploring the past, present and future of LGBT+ activism – including the stand-out exhibition Never Going Underground: the fight for LGBT+ rights – this community-led exhibition explores the impact of queer club culture and LGBT+ music-makers in Greater Manchester on attitudes towards sexuality across the city and beyond. Drawing together rarely-seen material from the Manchester District Music Archive, a user-led archive established in 2003 and run by volunteers to celebrate Greater Manchester music and its social history, Queer Noise documents the places, people and gigs that have contributed to the city’s shifting LGBT+ scene.
