This unique walking tour is led by Danny, an “adopted Mancunian”, to show people the city’s streets as he has lived them. His tour is a thoughtful and poetic exploration that will transport you to the flip side of Manchester, beyond the mere surface of its tourist attractions and into the depths of his own experience of homelessness.
His passion is abundantly clear throughout the tour as he helps you see Manchester in a different light by contextualising some of the city’s most beautiful areas in the experience of Manchester’s homeless community, and his own personal experience. Each stop is marked with either a poignant poetry piece, written by Danny, or an anecdote from his time on the streets.
As a transgender woman, Laura explores the history of inspirational Mancunian women who have influenced her journey of transition. Her exuberant character and cheerful attitude makes for a unique and exciting tour of Manchester’s city centre.
Her passion for the city's female culture and history is infectious. She truly celebrates the rich past of our radical feminine history by linking the history of women or of a particularly notable woman at each stop. The highlight of the tour is when she delves into stories about Emmeline Pankhurst and the Suffragette movement. Laura’s powerful tour opens one’s mind to ideas, challenges and stories about strong women, Manchester’s history and homelessness.
