The Pride Parade Goes On Without Me

February 10 - April 8


Outside In presents an exhibition of artworks and poetry exploring the intersect of LGBTQIA+ and disabled activist identities in Manchester.

Outside In logo.As well as artwork and poetry by North West Outside In artists, the exhibition is guest curated by Julian Gray and features newly commissioned artwork by lead artist, Dara SF Addams.

Manchester’s Gay Village has a strong and important history as one of the most vital LGBTQIA+ spaces in the UK, yet even in its modern form it contains few accessible venues.  Disabled LGBTQIA+ people are often isolated and forgotten, and these barriers also extend to Pride events.

Protest and activism often require a physical presence; they can sometimes include a risk of arrest which carries with it greater difficulties for those with intersectional identities, including disability, neuro-divergence, and mental health issues.

The artwork in this exhibition considers how barriers to access can impact one’s sense of identity as an LGBTQIA+ person, particularly as an LGBTQIA+ activist.

Suitable for 12+ (under 18s must have an accompanying adult).
