kaffes were our most frequent events, they featured such very cheap vegan feasts, many cakes, knitting circles, performers, and an oh so convivial atmosphere.
not on a sunday was a monthly queer women's kaffe. we wanted to create a space where queer women of all ages could relax, chat and hang out.
...and quentin wept was a queer clubnight with live music, performance and dancing. our idea was to create a queer space that we felt comfortable in, whilst supporting and showcasing queer talent. as happy as we are to sit in our rooms listening to our favourite music, dreaming our diy dreams, even we go out sometimes. and when we do, quentin weeps.
get bent! was our answer to the commercialism of the mainstream pride event. in response to our pride being sold back to us by consumerism we put on weekends of free events, food and fun. we did this for 2005 and 2006. from 2007 another group of manchester queers took up the baton, you can find them here.
