Over the bank holiday of August 1990, club promoter Lucy Scher produced a groundbreaking women-only event called The Summer of Lesbian Love at the Haçienda. The event attracted 1200 woman and led to the creation of gay club promotions company A Bit Ginger - a business partnership between Lucy and the Hacienda’s then Entertainments Manager Paul Cons. Lucy and Paul went on to create Flesh at the Hacienda, the monthly night that became one of the biggest regular LGBT events of that era.
