Why not explore our word of the day:


Community Lounge

A warm and welcoming entry to The Proud Place, the Community Lounge on our ground floor is the heart of the building.  A place for visitors to have a hot drink after a drop-in session, or young people to meet before heading upstairs for one of our youth groups. The large bright windows let the light shine into a spacious lounge area. The movable wall allows the space to be changed to suit the needs of different groups, creating a more intimate room at the back of the building for anything from meetings to board game afternoons.

The Community Lounge also contains our LGBT+ library, a cosy nook for reading, reflection and learning more about Manchester’s LGBT+ history.
