Manchester best gay-friendly destination

Manchester has been named the best gay-friendly destination in the world ahead of San Francisco, Sydney and Amsterdam.
The title has been awarded by Expogays, a Spanish based Gay Business and Tourism Fair, which showcases gay friendly businesses, tourism destinations and specialised products to more than 15,000 visitors.
Manchester has been recognised for the respect and tolerance it shows to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.
Andrew Stokes, chief executive of Marketing Manchester, said: “Manchester has always been a tolerant city and this award confirms that. It’s great to recognise the sense of community that LGBT people bring to the area”.
