Village Drinks as is a networking event for gay professionals that is held monthly. They’ve got something pretty special lined up for February’s event.
Held in connection with Manchester Pride, the special guest speaker is former NBA basketballer John Amaechi. He became the first openly gay NBA basketball player after coming out in his autobiography in 2007. Also he was raised in Heaton Moor, before moving to Ohio. John was also given an honorary degree by Manchester Metropolitan University in 2007.
Justin Moore, co-ordinator for Village Drinks Up North, said: “Our guest speaker during the evening is John Amaechi who is a very inspirational individual. This, together with the fabulous Cloud 23 venue sets the scene for what can only be described as – an event not to be missed! We are also donating half the funds for the evening to the Manchester Pride charity, which is a cause also very close to my heart.”
When: Tuesday, February 23, 6.30pm
Where: Cloud 23, Hilton
How much: £10
