Artefact

A press article in Mancunian Gay, 1981 covering the opening of BLUES in Ashton, a leather/uniform club for gay men that took over from the Gaslight, a club opened for women by Joyce Edwards in 1973. We also see an advert for Grass Roots Books - a vital hub for the political queer community Manchester, plus news of a gay night in Wigan.
