Happy new year all, hopefully you'll all have a prosperous 2003.

Now, you'll have to excuse me, I've begun drinking a bottle of Aftershock I got for Chrimbo, everyone have a good'un!

New Image

The community will be in need of a new image, anyone who is willing or bored enough to make an effort should send them to my e-mail address, I'll be selecting a winner who I'll credit on the community in about a month's time when I select it...

When I decide, I'll also try and put other good entries into gifs for everyone to see.
Early congrats to the winner and runner ups, and welcome to any new members in the meantime!

Welcome to the community, it's brand new so give it time to evolve and it'll flourish.

If you want to show you've just joined but can't think what to say, try putting a comment on this post to say hi and remember that this is a community for Manchester GLBT but anyone can join and post. That also means there will a young generation viewing at anytime, so don't make too much of a fool of yourself when posting.

And yeah, for those who are wondering, this is a community designed for meeting people online or offline, the only warning is that people be careful in real life who they meet.

Enjoy the community!
