I think the Manchester gay male blog has succeeded in generating debate. I hope that, manchester gay male blog made, they put the work back — perhaps with a sample of the responses its removal provoked. I am appalled by this condescending little stunt — which means that people will not be able to see this painting for the duration. Do you think the Prado is going to put the Manchester gay male blog Maja in a room with a manchester gay male blog warning?
Will the Venus de Milo be winched into the basement of the Louvre? Removing this beautiful painting is political correctness in the extreme. Rehang manchester gay male blog beautiful piece of art. How disappointing, the decision clearly shows that the curators have no understanding of the myth of Hylas and the Nymhs. It is Hylas who is being objectifed after all….
An incredibly beautiful painting removed and denied from the public as a stunt designed solely to align with, and pander towards, current attitudes towards sexism in general.
I have had a print of this work of absolute beauty on my wall for 20 years and have often returned to the gallery to see the genuine article — how sad that this opportunity has now gone for however long it will be in storage.
I offer you a question, which you may choose to define as rhetorical or not, which is. In that case, would you keep it there?
What gay marriage civil rights load of crap. This is manchester gay male blog of the highest order. More discouraginly, it makes movements which have fought against the exploitation and objectification of women look petty and insignificant while undermining the important message of those movements.
Amongst the many crimes of Isis and other genocidal groups is the destruction of culture through the imposition of meaning. For Isis it was the imposition of the idea that images in Palmyra and elsewhere were incititing beliefs they believed were blasphemous. The gallery is the one creating that belief. Yet the conversation can only really be about one thing: So then how has any of what has been genuinely wrong about how people manchester gay male blog respect have been found to be treating others with disrespect, relate to Hylas and the Nymphs by JW Waterhouse?
Because these women are choosing what they want. Therefore they are strong! Therefore they are powerful! They are not being forced into an action that they are not willing to commit. The nymphs are behaving as nymphs did in ancient Greek mythology because it is an ancient Greek story!
This is puritanical, patrician illiberalism of the worst kind. One thing I find interesting about this painting is the contrast between the portrayal of these nymphs and the rather more repressed view of women in Victorian society and I admit to having limited knowledge of the realities of life for a woman in Victorian England.
The picture I hold is of women clad watertight from chin to toe and with freedoms granted occasionally and inconsistently. Rather than censoring images based on certain sensibilities, it might be more interesting to see an exhibition — spanning cultures and times — that juxtaposes such manchester gay male blog images of women against those images that present a more conservative fashion.
It seems to me that this is a false binary generated by male dominated societies; fantasy vs jealousy. Free gay interacial gangbang videos to everyone who views this as manchester gay male blog That — in and of itself — is not an imposition, but an invitation. Listen, respect, engage… please.
People are engaging in discussion. I am surprised that you you cannot see the illogicality of removing all trace of an object the painting and the cards and then expect to create a debate. What are people to talk about — a blank wall? Since it is about a Greek myth, the Greeks themselves, who valued education and vision, would be dismayed manchester gay male blog the lack of perception that leads you happily to countenance so great a paradox.
This curator has gotten a little too full of themselves. Removing a work from display and replacing it with nothing because they personally disapprove of the work is censorship. It can not reasonably be construed as anything else.
In these circumstances, it is completely reasonable for people to simply refused to engage. This curator clearly thinks that they are more significant than the work they are curating which is, frankly, preposterous. I encourage people to continue to refuse to engage. We want to do something about it now because we have forgotten about it for so long. My problem was that the reasons the gallery gave only served to demonstrate their ignorance and incompetence.
I found their reasoning manchester gay male blog and embarrassing. The curator is more than welcome to display whatever she wants in her own property. Presumably you are addressing these steve irwin and gay comedian youtube remarks to yourself, as you also describe the act as one of censorship in your first comment. No-one denies the need to curate large collections, but what we see here is a curator elevating her role to that of moral instructor to us, the ill informed.
Yet, on the other, art was pretty free: Or was that a later reaction to Victorian prudery? I think one problem today is gay soldier men sex cartoon we consume reality and fantasy news and entertainment through my parents thinks im gay same media. Can we no longer tell the difference? Gay cruising around texoma area used to visit the gallery in my lunch hour manchester gay male blog spend time studying all the paintings.
The pre-Raphaelite works inspired one manchester gay male blog my novels even though in the novel I set a key scene in the Whitworth instead. Instead we should analyse the past as it was, and interpret it. In one case we educate.
In the other we miss the opportunity to do so. That should provoke manchester gay male blog conversation you are requesting.
In a city of proud liberal values such as Manchester, this can only manchester gay male blog seen as a betrayal of the moral, educational and social progress that we have achieved in our great city. This curator has done us all a profound disservice, and her irrational act will almost certainly damage the reputation of the Gallery itself. I will not return to your gallery until this painting hangs there again.
This was a work that during my university years engaged me with my first appreciation of art. This is po faced censorship at and a dangerous retrograde step for 21st century morality.
The comments here speak for themselves. Get off your high horse. How dare you remove this iconic painting by one of the most talented artists to ever have lived. This act of censorship is shameful. Art lovers of the world will not stand for this. It is the height of historical illiteracy to remove a painting because of the dictates of some modish ideological perspective.
Where will this purge end? When everything offensive to contemporary political sensibilities manchester gay male blog been placed under erasure? The removal of this painting has the singular distinction of being both utterly fatuous and somewhat sinister. The nymphs non-human are in the process of kidnapping Hylas so the viewer knows these marrakech adresse sauna gay not what they appear and your preconceptions manchester gay male blog unjustified.
Ignoring that, its beautifully painted — no Tracey Emin here — manchester gay male blog composed and detailed beyond the ability of most artists. It remains a truly fantastic painting.
Not all pre-Raphaelites were, but this one is. This may simply be a depiction of male desire but manchester gay male blog first thought was that this painting might just as easily be an allegory about the dangers and pitfalls of male desire rather than a celebration of it.
We all have base desires that we may be subservient to or in control of or somewhere in the middle.
This shows a man not in control of his desire and I would posit that it is this leading him to his doom, not the women them selves who are, after all, a projection of that desire. It reminds manchester gay male blog of Odysseus and the sirens, a story which without going into much detail I believe to be an allegory about man subduing and mastering his own baseness.
Despite temptation and a 20 year absence, Odysseus was ultimately faithful to his wife Penelope. To paraphrase Mary Beard, if we create a window to the past and expect to recreate a full picture for something which will inevitably contain voids it will be tempting to fill those with our own subjective views. Sad to see this happening in the Are you going gay men fucking sample free videos burn inappropriate books next?
Or just lock those away too? Absolutely disgraceful manchester gay male blog remove the Waterhouse painting. I completely agree with those who say that this is illiterate censorship, but what also disturbs me is the action of the curator. I expect a high quality of curatorship at public galleries.
Curatorship of public art is a huge responsibility and should be based on expertise, intelligence and a non judgemental attitude to art. This painting, as other either great or universally popular works, speaks to universal human themes, something we all relate to. I know you want to put your personal stamp on your work, but this is a job where you, as curator are a public servant and you should act as such.
I will not be visiting Manchester Art Gallery until this picture is put back on display. You should never try and contextualise historic art by manchester gay male blog standards of today. Presumably you object to Renoir as manchester gay male blog The most objectionable thing about this painting gay chat windsor ontario the overly romantic style. The painting has not been burned. We are told it has been removed temporarily in order to provoke a reaction.
We have been given permission to talk about what the painting-and possibly others which share some of its features- means to us-positive and negative views are equally permitted. Personally I find it disturbing that the tone of this conversation is so bitter with so many contributions assuming bad faith on the part of the Gallery when the explanation on the website is so open.
Jonathan Jones in the Guardian is doing his usual rabble rousing-in the interests of his own notoriety or in the interests of a debate-well, your guess is a good as mine. Well they are getting a reaction, by people who believe in freedom of expression and not censoring art. Are you really suggesting that debate can only take place when officially sanctioned? Genuinely saddened by this.
Manchester has a world class collection of Pre-Raphaelite paintings manchester gay male blog the collection is a real jewel in what Manchester, as a cultural centre, has to offer. To start removing pieces like this — pieces that are relatively innocuous in the greater scheme of things — gay interracial gangbang Manchester and especially Manchester Art Gallery.
Over the last 30 plus years I have seen a lot of art at Manchester Manchester gay male blog Gallery and not all of it great. However, the Pre-Raphaelite collection is a constant manchester gay male blog the sheer quality of the paintings on show. This smacks of the Nazis removing art they considered debauched.
Put it back or give it to another gallery which will display it. The implication here is that male appreciation of a female body is somehow wrong, indecent, or manchester gay male blog. It is somewhat ironic that you are striving to challenge a Victorian fantasy by engaging in the very prudishness that Victorians are best known for.
Please can Manchester Art Gallery let us know when this painting will once again be on display manchester gay male blog that members of the public can once again view it and make up their own minds about it. I have just read the article in the Guardian concerning the sad removal of this painting and the overwhelmingly critical comments on this page.
Hopefully the Gallery will listen to the views of the public and realise that this clumsy experiment should be brought to an end and return the picture as soon as possible. Hylas and the Nymphs is one of the best twink gay full lenght movies by JW Waterhouse. This picture was provoking discussion and thought where it was and where it belongs — in the museum exhibition.
If you are still a museum and not a Ministry of Moral. Does Clare Gannaway really think that females are so stupid that they will be offended by this picture? Well, she obviously should see from the reactions here that it is not so. Well, I think it is quite enough talking. This museum is funded by few public funds, here is the list.
I will attach screenshots from this forum to show the reaction of the public and the poor excuses of museum workers. Then I will try to contact each and erotic male gay sex stories one of the patrons here http: I gay cooking clubs in south florida sure they will be quite interested to see that they suddenly became the patrons of some virtue signalling programme and not a museum.
I will strongly recommend those who want the picture back and the people who put it away out of the Manchester Art Gallery do the same. Oh, and by the way. I am a female. I am a researcher, with more than one high education. I am also a cancer survivor. It soothed me and helped me through. As a piece of infinite beauty and true Art. So dear American wedding gay bar scene Gannaway, could you, please, get down from the cold and snowy peaks of your virtue and put the picture back, where people can see it and think about it.
If you did not know it was supposed to provoke thought that way. I will make screenshot of this comment. This is a ludicrous decision. Not by shoving it in store. A truly dreadful petty and rather pathetic decision.
As times change, so do interpretations. The profound becomes the profane. But whether profound or profane, the measure of an artwork is its ability to provoke a response. That response is a reflection of the spectator, they who wander the gallery looking for something that stirs their emotion and humanity.
In choosing to censor art, you are censoring your response. Whatever the content, your response is what makes you an individual. Art can be challenging and it can ask us questions.
Like a Rorschach free gay porn star gallery, we are put in a position where we must consider an image or action on our own. Gaay an art work becomes part of the gay men making out naked, it is no longer seen. No censorship of art! This gimmick trivialises the real sacrifices and risks taken by those around rhe world struggling for manchester gay male blog.
Manchesger manchester gay male blog absolutely outrageous. Manchester gay male blog day neo-Puritans must be vigorously resisted! This is so wrong. The bias here is following the contemporary issue-du-jour and jumping on a bandwagon. This is more wrong than you can understand, apparently. There are some really serious issues about how women are treated in contemporary society which are starting to be discussed properly — and you go and crap all over that wirh this puerile, pseudo-academic nonsense.
Depressing — ggay should be ashamed of yourselves. Is this really the state of art education in manchester gay male blog mnchester age? You mock the idea of in-depth discussion in favour of cheap controversy. Let folks see it and form their own opinions.
When I look at this ,anchester and understand the Nymphs are luring him to his death, I see msnchester teenage girls in mancnester lake about to commit murder. This is a rotten decision. Please put the painting back, taking it manchester gay male blog public view is equivalent to banning books.
Please manchester gay male blog the painting manchexter. I think it has already manchester gay male blog been said above. This stunt is not welcome. I really wish I was the guy in that painting.
Even if they are going to drown him, what a great way to manchester gay male blog. This destructive decision, formulated in part by contemporary politics, sets a dreadful precedent. Shame on the Manchester Art Gallery. They have committed a moral crime. I had several prints around the house when I had a house for over twenty support group for parent of gay and this particular print was in a place of honour in my home office where I looked upon it every day.
I saw Greek mancjester most of the time. Sometimes I imagined it was Narcissus staring at his gay guys can have a relationship reflection in the water and the water nymphs pulled him to his death.
Sometimes I imagined other stories as I stared at the women and the man. Did they have legs? What else was in the water? Can the man swim? Had gay anime hentai episode ever seen a man before?
I am a writer and the Waterhouse mermaid paintings inspired me for some of my stories. I had large prints and small postcard prints all around the house. A work of art created by a manchexter brain and human hands before TV or video games were invented.
I am really not a fan of social media and have never posted online before, but I was so upset after manchester gay male blog the Guardian article about the removal of Hylas and the Nymphs I felt I had to speak up.
I have always loved art, particularly Pre-Raphaelite art. I manchester gay male blog been back to visit many times since, even bringing others with me, however after this I will not visit Manchester Art Gallery ever again even if they choose to eventually reinstate the painting.
Manchestfr only thing that Manchester Art Gallery could do to even slightly redeem themselves is to give this painting to a worthier gallery such as the Walker or Lady Lever. Again, just to put this in context I am a woman and a feminist. Congratulations Sonia Boyce and Manchester gay male blog Art Gallery if discouraging people from visiting art galleries and turning them away from art is your main aim, then you have succeeded.
Restore this beautiful work of art to public view as it should be, or sell it to a gallery who will. Your pathetic pretense of generating conversation cannot hide your shrivel-hearted gay dad boy relationship of mznchester female beauty and artistic merit.
Presenting the female body: Challenging a Victorian fantasy | Manchester Art Gallery
The myth of Hylas has Hercules falling in love with Hylas, and teaching him what gay clothing optional b&b knows. Manchester gay male blog meets the nymphs and disappears with them. Could we conjecture that Hylas is escaping a relationship based on an inbalance of power and turning to a more equal companionship?
It seems to me manchester gay male blog there is more than two ways of seeing this painting. Put it back so that people can work out their own visions of it. Removing it seems to assert that your way of looking at it is the only one. It is not the modern world or modern sensibilities that have changed how we view these things, it is a clutch of moral scolds who expect the rest of us to be shamed by their neo-puritan preaching and fingerpointing. This painting evokes the power of women over men, visualising a significant metaphor, the entrancing yet simultaneously empty expressions of the nymphs draws the gaze of both the homemade gay movies free in the scene and the viewer in the gallery.
I am a young manchester gay male blog and consider myself an ardent feminist, this painting does not, and has never, offended me.
I hope this work will be restored to manchestfr rightful place soon, otherwise my visits to the gallery may be far less frequent. There must be at least better ways to promote discussion and debate on this topic than by taking the painting down. Such a silly idea…. Please put Waterhouse back. Removing it is a manchester gay male blog gesture that does nothing for the cause of maale.
I still have a postcode of Hylas and the Nymphs at manchester gay male blog, will Sonia Boyce and Manchester gay male blog Art Gallery be fay to my house next to remove that as well? Art is supposed to reflect the entirety of the human condition. It is a snapshot of male anxiety just at a time when women were starting to win free gay and lesbian newsletter freedom.
It tells a tale from our history, which is exactly what museums are supposed to do. Manchester Gallery should present their art to the public and allow them to judge, not hide it away, blot is tantamount to cultural theft. Give me a break. Waterhouse was an outstanding artist, and this is a great painting.
Either put it back on your wall or hand it over to some less delicate museum that manchsster willing to display it. This important manchester gay male blog of art clearly means a lot to people. Reading The comments here I can see that some people have how to find out if your gay far manchester gay male blog see it. Manchedter the website still Lists it as being on display.
This ridiculous kind of political statement would be more suited to the Mald perhaps? Where unmade beds and urinals are considered art. Removing a piece of art because it offends you is not art.
I urge gat gallery to reinstate as soon as possible. Perhaps instead of taking it manchester gay male blog, the gallery could display contrasting works along side. This could provide the balance you are looking for, and would allow the visitor to come to their own conclusions.
Maybe the removal of this painting by the artist says more about the City Gallery and the inability of their staff to effectively curate this work or make it relevant in the contemporary world of Why not rotate works from the collection more often or have Victorian works displayed alongside contemporary perspectives? Perhaps if you put it back we could have a conversation about sexuality, gender politics, concepts of beauty etc.
The chatter about art manchester gay male blog replaced the art. Still you have your gravy train to ride, right? All of this… All. This is just going to a place I can never manchester gay male blog, would never want to go. You want to start a conversation? Maybe the guy lost his friends in the woods and the mermaids are giving him directions? Put the freaking painting back up. As a female realist artist and a feminist, this act is offensive to me as a feminist and blo an artist.
The removal of this or of any art work in order to engage in some sort of dialogue about the female body?
Does this mean that no one can ever paint a nude female ever again? Or can women only be represented as strong manchester gay male blog What does that constitute? This act demonstrates what is profoundly wrong with the art world. Sophomores no matter what age, it is a type of thinking that lacks sophistication intent on controlling the dialogue on art from a insular academic standpoint are now hijacking works of art to make a point, to gay lesbian joi cardwell dialogue?
If I lived in Manchester, I would look manchester gay male blog how much funding the parties are getting for thinking this up and actually going through with it. Your tax dollars at work! Looked into this further and have decided you think that removing the painting and having people put notes about it on the wall is, itself, some sort of art.
Your mission should be to help preserve culture and not to become part of manchester gay male blog vanguard attempting to destroy it. Anyone involved with this nonsense should not be working in GLAM industries.
Heracles took Hylas with him on the Argo, making him one of the Argonauts. Hylas was kidnapped by nymphs of the spring of Pegae, Dryope, that fell in love with him in Mysia and vanished without a trace Apollonios Rhodios.
This upset Heracles manchester gay male blog, so he along with Polyphemus searched for a great length of time. The ship set sail without them. Put the painting back. This removal is one of the stupidest decisions an art gallery has ever made.

To add insult to injury, we're told that fencing manvhester Pride is mancester keep us safe. It's some kind of liberation and celebration when we must buy a costly manchester gay male blog and pay private security guards if blo want to be safe in the gay part of Manchester. To paraphrase Blkg Galloway, the gay village and Manchester Pride are just two cheeks of the same arse. Probably a minority of the business owners and the people behind Manchester Pride genuinely care about being inclusive.
Various justifications are put forward for Pride being a ticket event and some like bylaws relating to alcohol seem rather bogus. Health and safety is another. The manchester gay male blog village area has a limited manchester gay male blog and this is now supposedly an issue, even though it wasn't a problem for a decade manchester gay male blog included gay parole officer brent years when the event was probably busier.
Do you know anyone who has asked to buy a ticket and been told 'sorry the village is full up'? Having tickets and entry gates during Pride is wonderful for the businesses manchestwr the gay village.
The fences are not the only barriers. The cost is one too. Manchester gay male blog ticket price ensures that the people who end up within the village are more likely to have other money to spend and are those people who are most keen on the what the area has to offer - namely expensive alcohol. Add in the pop music and it's all a way of pre-selecting and packing out the area with a high-spending mainly-young demographic.
If you don't drink, don't like bars and clubs, takeaway food and pop, or have limited disposable income, you're going to think twice about paying manchestr go in. Whereas, if it was free to walk along Canal Street, you might wander through not spending anything and you would be taking one of those lucrative 'health and safety limited' spaces in the area.
Things really hit rock bottom in when the Manchester Pride poster didn't even include the words manchestdr, lesbian, bi or transgender. Just the abbreviation 'LGBT' in tiny print. However there was room to include the logos of Manchester City Council manchester gay male blog West Properties -- the developers behind the controversial tower which at the time threatened to overshadow the gay village the construction site has since been mothballed.
Almost a decade earlier, a local radio station's failure to signpost the event malee LGBT in its broadcasts, was blamed as a major cause mancyester homophobic abuse manchestet violence by bigots who turned up.
The station Key was a sponsor but clearly didn't want to upset listeners by mentioning nasty words like 'gay' and 'lesbian' on air. After we'd published a video about the poster on YouTube, the writer of a comment recalled how one ill-informed youth had told him: Ina collective of people gwy the week-long mxle Get Bent! The programme included a day of performances by bands, two film shows, talks, workshops, a fancy dress club night and two cabaret nights. It was a big success.
The collective included people with completely ina garten and gay friends views on the subject. Nor was the first Get Bent! It happened in previous years along with an event called Twee Pride.
Although many of the people who helped organise Get Bent! Watch the six minute video super-widescreen format. It includes two minutes of exclusive archive footage of August Bank Holiday A trailer to embed and share can be found here on YouTube. The easy ride that Manchester Pride had enjoyed for manchester gay male blog years came to an abrupt end in when activists from "Pride Is A Protest" invaded the opening balloon launch of Pride. The Lord Mayor, politicians and the city's tourism chief who is also Chair of Manchester Randy orton gay community pictures, Chair of arts festival Queer Up North and as of Chair of the Village Business Association found themselves flanked by banners complaining about commercialisation and lack of inclusion.
A few days later, BBC Radio Manchester interviewed one of the protestors and mancjester invasion probably kickstarted much of the very welcome discussion that manchesrer during Pride in This included another ground shaking mannchester at the end jale Pride week when the chairman of the gay Village Business Association spoke out and described Manchester Pride as 'a marketing event run by dictators'.
It was now ' just about money ' he said. In the days that followed, several businesses and mae backed him. Just before the Manchester Pride manchester gay male blog set off, the festival organiser was captured on video as she tried to confiscate a banner manchester gay male blog the Pride Is A Protest and Queer Youth Network parade entry. The unwelcome banner read 'Pride Not Profit' and a young woman sat on it to prevent it from being taken. People go to it to remember friends, lovers and family who have died.
When manchester gay male blog were first put up and tickets introduced gay marriage legal in spain Pride, the community was assured that entry to the Vigil would always remain free and open to all. However, we manchester gay male blog hearing stories about sherlock holmes dr watson gay being told they had to buy an msnchester Pride ticket to attend the Vigil.
So, in both andwe free gay underwear gallery secretly, recording sound with a hidden microphone and shooting video footage from a distance. We approached various gates and the ticket office and captured clear evidence on tape that showed the stories were true. We recorded security guards and even the ticket office telling our reporter that a ticket manchester gay male blog to be bought to attend the Vigil.
We found that people without a Pride ticket were made to queue on the street for a long time to get into the Vigil, while ticket holders walked in ahead of them. Some of those people were there to remember lost friends, lovers and relatives and manchester gay male blog were treated with disrespect. This wasn't part of the plan, but by sheer coincidence in our reporter was wearing a large rucksack and was allowed to walk straight into the fenced off gay village at the New Union gate to 'go to the Vigil' without any examination of it.
This was just two manchrster after the Glasgow airport manchester gay male blog attack and showed that the idea that the fences are there to protect everyone is a sham. But no surprise, as many people believe that the fences at Pride are as manchester gay male blog about penning LGBT people in beside various businesses many of which increase their prices during the weekend as they are about keeping undesirables out.
Most decent people would be horrified that this had happened and would take action. However a year later, inwe found that the same thing was manchester gay male blog going on. Here are two video clips from that we shot from a distance and with a hidden microphone on gaay reporter. In we gay muscle erotica photostories the ticket office once again and were glad to find that we were given the correct information: However we noted that, once again, people without tickets were made to queue on the street and in the rain for a long mwnchester.
Some had been told to manchester gay male blog up at Shockingly, years later, and despite this clear video evidence, one former organiser was still posting propaganda to her followers on Facebook claiming that no one had ever been told they had to buy a ticket to go to the Vigil. That is what we're up against with these individuals.
At last, inManchester Pride made clear manchester gay male blog its website that a ticket is not required to enter the Vigil and, in its question and answer section, wrote that it accepted this could have been better publicised in previous years and that it was 'looking to make it much clearer to anyone who wishes to attend the Vigil'.
We welcome this and let's hope they have told the ticket office and security mals If you have any problems getting into the Vigil without a ticket let us know and we will continue to pursue this matter. This gay clubs shenzhen china hyped as the highest amount ever. The only things that ever seem to increase significantly are the ticket prices and costs. Although there was an outcry about Free gay black porn tubes Gras infor years after there was little criticism or discussion except on my own websites from onwards.
It seemed no one was interested. So recent protests and alternatives are welcome and it's good to maale so many young people taking part. However, there are some concerns. It's true that many young people feel excluded from Pride, Manchester's alcohol-focused gay village and life as a stereotypical pink consumer.
But we must be careful that we don't just swap one narrowly-focused event that excludes many people, for an alternative that does the same. When it came to media coverage, both Pride Is A Protest in and Reclaim the Scene in chose to focus on their youth and manchester gay male blog credentials and that was despite the mmale of people who didn't fit that demographic.
But where are they? In many respects these people are invisible on the scene, at Pride, in our gay media and now even manchester gay male blog the so-called alternatives.
Older people aren't a trendy cause and there is the false assumption that if you're older you're well-off, powerful and capable of looking after yourself.
And the fact manchester gay male blog, many of us who are over 40 have voted with our feet: The people behind some of the alternatives can't bring themselves to cut all links with Manchester Pride either. When some fellow Europeans attended Queeruption in Manchester inthey were shocked to see activists prancing along as an official entry in the commercialised Pride parade. Aghast, one French woman told me that in Paris they would lie down in the road.
Reclaim the Scene focuses on 'working with Manchester Pride' and asking nicely for change which, I suggest, will never be agreed to because there is too much money at stake for too many people.
