  Canal St
by orlikins

Manchester has a very well-known 'Gay Village' which is down in Canal St (Rochdale Canal) - near the UMIST college and Princess st. In recent years, it has become less exclusively gay as more and more 'straight' people come down to Canal St to hang out in the cool bars thanks to the TV series 'Queer as Folk' which was about 3 gay friends in Manchester

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
