Follies
3rd February 2000

A piece about HomoElectric from (I think) the Metro, February 3rd 2000. The club night had been going for almost two years at this point. Ryan Minchin, the self-proclaimed 'sloganeer-in-chief' of HomoElectric says in the piece, 'When we began the Village was ripe for a good kicking. People were becoming so alienated by that trashy, camp and dull scene. We wanted to create the feel of an underground New York gay disco'.

There is also a profile of DJ Tim Lennox on this page. Tim was the godfather of the 90s LGBT house scene in Manchester and inspired Kath McDermott (pictured) to start DJing.
