Yep, it's time for LGBT history month. LGBT hasn't got anything to do with bacon butties but stands for `lesbian gay bisexual and transgender'. And there's a whole series of celebrations based around the theme.

The two events we've picked out are about the militant side of the struggle to overcome LGBT oppression.

Working Class Movement Library
51 The Crescent Salford M5 4WX (big black and white building opp Salford Museum)

This event stars ace singer/songwriter Claire Mooney and political cartoonist Fanny Cattran and uses live music, art and readings from Oscar Wilde and Edward Carpenter to explore LGBT history with artefacts from the incredible collection of leaflets, pamphlets, books, banners, badges and photos at the Library.

The day promises to "transport you back to the Victorian drawing room and to the hot political climate of the 1970s to contrast and discuss the gay and lesbian struggle for identity and to give a tantalising glimpse into our inspirational Library…Bring nothing but an open mind."


EVERYBODY OUT!
Sat and Sun 18th/19th Feb 10am-4pm free
Mechanics Institute, 103 Princess Street, Manchester

This is a two day conference celebrating LGBT trades union history, and is backed by UCU, People's History Museum and Manchester TUC.

Saturday includes a conference `Strengthening Our Voice' with speakers Lisa Power, Policy Head of the Terrence Higgins Trust; Paul Flowers, Chair of Cooperative Financial Services and Tony Fenwick co-chair of LBGT month. At 6pm there's a wine and buffet reception, and from 7-10pm there's a cabaret starring Salford based comedienne Kate McCabe, the `people's songstress' Claire Mooney, and Les Vegas and the International Playboys of Rhythm – a `ten piece lounge combo specialising in 24 carat gold lurex gutter swing'.

Sunday sees the conference discuss `LGBT Resistance Then and Now' with contributions from Noel Halifax, founder lesbians and gays support the miners; Kate Richardson, one of the founders of Trade Unionists Against Clause 28 and Outrage, and Salford's own Hazel Must Go! candidate David Henry, who's also founder of Queer Youth Network.

ARTISTS TO CHALLENGE HOUSING POLICIES WHILE LIVING IN LUXURY HOUSE

'You can't even stop your car to take in the breathtaking sterilization of the place...'

Last week, artists moved into a stunning Urban Splash house in the new Springfield Lane development as part of a year-long project called Tenancy in which they will explore 'what it's like to live in a city negotiating rapid change' and 'who is benefitting'.

The Springfield Lane development, being branded as in 'Manchester', has no affordable housing and avoided hundreds of thousands of pounds in planning fees. Can the artist project, actually sponsored by Tom Bloxham and Urban Splash, make a difference?
