Ahead of the annual moneyspinner extraordinaire that is Pride, Queeruption brings some DIY ructions to the city. A series of events kicks off THIS SUNDAY 22ND AUGUST with an opening party at Rusholme's Saki Bar, two floors of performance, stalls, politics, bands, DJs, dancing and queer togetherness. Check out the other events below and via Facebook/Myspace, come down and meet the beautiful people. And if you've nowhere to stay you can camp! Queeruption Basecamp welcomes all. Details in the linkies below. See you there. Oh, and I'll be DJing at the opening party and whoring on the door.
Remember, we love you, we are not the same ...
"Brilliant party to celebrate QUEERUPTION erupting all over Manchester!
We've got both floors from 6pm - 2am, upstairs will be where our gaggle of performers hail and downstairs we'll have lounge music, distros and political stalls. All this untill 11 when the DJs come on!!
We'll see you there to start Queeruption with a gangbang xxx
