Queer Noise is a musical and pictorial journey through the little-known corners of LGBT music and nightlife in Manchester, including a feast of touching images, snippets of classic songs, hilarious anecdotes and LGBT lives remembered, all taken from Manchester District Music Archive and presented in a small cinema screen setting by MDMarchive's Abigail Ward.
