Homoelectric founder Luke Unabomber said: “It’s with great excitement, after two decades of blood sweat and tears from out first home in a Manchester back street club , we are planning our very own Homoelectric festival. We have finally found our holy grail place. This is something very special and as ever this is all about uniting the clans, togetherness, inclusivity and love. Building a place where we can bring together all our people and our heroes and dance til we are free. A queer block party for all.”
