Flyer for Queer Academy - a multi-floored LGBT rave promoted by A Bit Ginger (Lucy Scher & Paul Cons), the team behind the hugely successful gay night Flesh at the Hacienda.
This review from City Life magazine suggests that the plan was to make Queer Academy a regular bi-monthly club night. It didn't happen. My guess is that Paul & Lucy wanted to do a weekend event in Manchester (Flesh was on a Wednesday), and so experimented at the Academy, but for whatever reason it didn't work out.
Regular Flesh DJs Tim Lennox and Kath McDermott (with occasional DJ partner Lin) played at Queer Academy.
