    The Sparkle Weekend is the world's largest celebration of gender identity run by the National Transgender Charity Sparkle in Manchester. LGBT Labour will have a stall in Sackville Gardens on Saturday 7 July from 12noon until late afternoon. There we’ll be selling our merchandise, signing up new members, and getting people to sign up to our Trans Allies Network.

    We will be meeting at Sackville Gardens in Manchester's Gay Village on Saturday morning around 9am to set up our stall. Sackville Gardens is a short walk from Manchester Piccadilly Train Station, or Piccadilly or St Peter's Square Metrolink stops.

    Please RSVP to let us know if you’re coming - let’s get a great turnout for a fab event, and an important one for the trans community.

    Golden Years? Recognising the needs of older LGBT people
    Thursday, July 12, 2018 at 06:30 PM · 20 rsvps
    LGBT Foundation in Manchester, United Kingdom

    2017 marked the 50th anniversary of the Sexual Offences Act, which saw the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in England and Wales. The generations of LGBT people that fought for this, and who have fought many other battles for LGBT equality since, and who lived through the horror of the AIDS epidemic, are now entering their later years.

    But what is life like in 21st-Century Britain for older LGBT people, and how could it be better? How does being LGBT impact on older LGBT people, their experiences of the LGBT community, of family relationships, and of health, wellbeing and care?

    In a special discussion event, featuring contributors from organisations including Ambition for Ageing, there will be an opportunity to discuss and come up with ideas for policies to improve the lives of older LGBT people. The event will be held on Thursday 12 July 2018, 6.30pm in Conference Room 1, LGBT Foundation, 5 Richmond Street, Manchester M1 3HF.

    The event is free, but spaces are limited, so please RSVP via the link below if you are able to attend. The LGBT Foundation is just a short walk from Manchester Piccadilly train station, Piccadilly Gardens bus station, and Piccadilly Gardens and Market Street Metrolink stops.
