I AM because we are

I AM because we are

I Am Because We Are stands in the wake of Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham’s recent unveiling at the Manchester Pride Candlelit Vigil in August, of the plan for the city-region to become part of the Fast Track Cities network.

In launching the programme, the Mayor has set out a bold plan to end all new cases of HIV in Greater Manchester residents within 25 years.

I Am Because We Are will tour from 8 – 21 October across seven Greater Manchester boroughs, with partners including the Destitution Project and the Proud Trust. Our venues include churches, community centres and drop-in centres for refugees and asylum seekers. 

The following performances are confirmed with more to follow:
