This was an anti homophobia Queer Punx Unite gig that was put on by Trash-O-Rama in October 2010 at Retro Bar.

The purpose of the gig was to show that queer artists flourished in all genres of music - even punk - and shouldn`t be pigeon holed!

It brought together local queer pop punk pioneer Ste McCabe and Londons anarcho punk and homophobia fighters The Restarts. Support also came from local queer performance art musical maestros Will n Rick!

Uniting punks and queers from all walks of life a great night was had by all - the venue was rammed all night and I don`t think 1 drink was spilt - Andy from Retro Bar might disagree though. All parties concerned got on swimmingly - which was a beautiful experience for us as promoters and enabled The Restarts to gain further gigs at anti Homophobia events - this was what we believe to be the first of it`s kind in Manchester.
