Greater Manchester LGBT Arts + Culture Network is an LGBT Foundation project, supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. The Network aims to provide support, training + awareness for cultural organisations in delivering events and projects in all boroughs with LGBT+ artists, participants, staff, and audiences.
