A huge mural is taking shape in Manchester’s Gay Village - honouring the city’s most famous gay people.

Computing pioneer Alan Turing, Suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst, fashion designer Quentin Crisp and drag queen Foo Foo Lammar are all pictured.

The enormous mural - 40 metres high and nine metres wide - is being painted on the side of bar The Molly House on Richmond Street.

The design, which also incorporates current drag act Anna Phylactic and dancing bears on a rainbow, was chosen after a public competition organised by gay community group Queerchester.

Professional street artists Hayley Garner, from Rochdale, and Joy Gilleard from Leeds, both 31, started the huge project on Monday, with a public ‘unveiling’ party when it is finished planned for this Sunday, 28th September.
