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.
