You can still browse our resources whilst you wait. A pop up chat window will appear once one of the Proud Connection team is available.

Why not explore our word of the day:

Biromantic

Library

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.

THE PROUD PLACE’S LGBT+ HISTORY

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.

Later this year we’d love to welcome you to access this as a lending library, but for now these books can be enjoyed within the space.
