Builders are to start work creating a bespoke £2.4million LGBT+ center for Manchester, the northern capital of LGBT+ Britain. And TV writer and producer Russell T Davies will get them going by breaking ground on the project on Thursday (6 August). In June, demolition workers smashed down the old center, which was the first of its kind to be built in Europe. However, construction teams will now create the three-storey new building. It will create the space the team needs to help an extra 50,000 people a year. The building will be at Sidney Street, a short walk from the city’s world famous Gay Village centered on Canal Street. Gay writer Davies became famous when he created Queer As Folk. The UK drama series, set in Manchester, brought gay sex to mainstream TV audiences. A US version went on to achieve huge popular success.
