Welcome to Manchester
As a local I am maybe not as excited as I should be. Yes Europride is here, Mardi Gra, Manfest, Village Charity Weekend, as it was formerly known. I went into the city today, but didn't even have a shave, how rubbish. Many of the new gay arrivals were putting me to shame. However with the uniform these gays are very easy to spot:
1-'Salon' cut hair (Like Limahl)
2-'Healthy' tan (Again, like Limahl)
4-Dressed for a Saturday night but on a Thursday afternoon
Maybe tommorrow I will make the effort, wear my gayest top and head to Piccadilly station. "Welcome gays!!".
PS The Europride theme this year is fruit. I imagine there will be an over use of bananas in Saturdays parade, gums around plumbs, etc.
