Why not explore our word of the day:



At the heart of The Proud Place is an LGBT+ Library, featuring LGBT+ books, heritage and a zine library.

We have an extensive collection of books featuring LGBT+ stories and people for all age groups.

Our Library opening is due to take place on Tuesday 19th September, 2023. Come join us!


The Proud Place has played an important part in Manchester’s LGBT+ History. Did you know that the original 1988 building was Europe’s first purpose built ‘Gay Centre’? Alongside lots of LGBT+ books, our library features archive and heritage material spanning more than three decades including photos, maps and newspaper clippings.

Our building has a fascinating place in Manchester’s LGBT+ History. Find out more about our story here.
