Superbia Monthly Newsletter - September
September at Superbia!
There’s no denying that sad feeling as The Manchester Pride Festival fades away and Autumn appears – but here at Superbia we’re excited to support LGBT+ culture all year round, and there’s no stopping us in September!
First of all, a huge thank you to everyone who contributed to The Superbia Weekend. Every single artist, volunteer, participant, staff member, audience and visitor played an important role in making this our biggest and boldest Superbia Weekend so far! We’ll be blogging all about it soon, so stay tuned.
So, what does the first month of Autumn have in store for LGBT+ Manchester?…
