With all of Greater Manchester’s hospitals missing A&E waiting time targets this week despite the mild winter, A&E Consultant Charlotte Doughty describes what it’s like on the front line at Stepping Hill. Met Office forecaster Simon Partridge with a gloomy weather forecast. And Jane goes to find out about GMP’s #nonefortheroad campaign.
Later this month the Lesbian and Gay Foundation will be hosting a talk by local historian Paul Fairweather – about the important role Manchester played in the fight for equality.
It’ll be covering four decades in the twentieth century, and what the events mean for the lesbian, gay and bisexual community.
Paul Fairweather spoke to Under the Rainbow. He explained where the talk begins.
Mark Pattison talks to motoring presenter Quentin Willson and Kate Rock from tyre company Goodyear, about new research which suggests British drivers are ill-prepared for winter driving conditions.
Dancing is a great way to exercise and socialise, at the same time. Tonight, Under the Rainbow finds out about Queer Tango dance lessons starting next week in Wilmslow for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people. Organiser Paul Fairweather started by explaining that the moves they use differ from those in Ballroom Tango.
Next Tuesday is World AIDS Day. Under the Rainbow spoke to Paul Fairweather, the Manchester Councillor who publicly spoke about his HIV status at the Manchester Pride Candlelit Vigil this year.
Paul told Under the Rainbow about the reasons behind his public disclosure, the reactions, and the stigma felt by other HIV positive people.
