Manchester's gay village.
- "The New Union, as a gay and lesbian meeting place, probably goes back as far as the nineteenth century. It certainly existed before WWII. One suggestion for the name is that the ‘new’ in its title celebrated the union [in 1801] of England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland."
It is featured in the Manchester LGBT Heritage Trail.
