LGBT History

Carol Ann Duffy, the first female Poet Laureate, lives in Didsbury:

"Now, she lives in the Manchester suburb of Didsbury, where she looks after her daughter Ella’s two spaniels, Lola and Scrumpy, while Ella is finishing her degree in English, education and drama at Cambridge." [1]

A Didsbury Pride event is planned for 2019.
