Artefact

A piece from the Manchester Evening News about the first ever Homo Electric club night at Follies, Whitworth Street West.

The photo demonstrates the change in tone from days of Flesh at the Haç and their 'Thank You For Not Being Heterosexual' or 'Wish You Were Queer- type slogans.

Homo Electric was billed as 'A night for Homos, Hetros, Lesbos and Don't Knows'. 'No exclusions'.

It had a very different door policy to Flesh, where, famously, you’d be subjected to a quiz to ascertain the veracity of your gayness.
