BiPhoria wrote a while ago to various venues around Manchester's gay village. In the time BiPhoria has been running, there had been a number of problems highlighted to them. Issues of bi people being turned away from gay venues in the city because "this is a gay space" from staff. One bar's door staff even claimed a "bisexuals allowed in on weeknights only" policy.
They asked if bis were welcome, especially in light of the recent Goods & Services legislation which outlaws discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation in most such situations.
Venues that chose not to reply: Axm, Bar Below, Coyotes, Cruz, Eden, Essential, Gaia, Hollywood, Manto, Napoleons, Paddys Goose, Queer, Spirit, New Union, Thompsons, Vanilla.
You may want to bear it in mind when you make your village drinking decisions!
