Icebreakers is a self help, mutual support group in Manchester that helps gay, bisexual, and questioning men and trans-men aged 18 to 80 plus.

We’ve been here since 1986 and thousands of men have used the group.

You can e-mail the group at info@icebreakersmanchester.org.uk  – this is checked regularly (we aim to reply within 48 hours).

If you need to talk to someone we encourage you to call our friends on the LGBT Foundation helpdesk on 0345 330 30 30 or 0161 235 8035 (10:00 – 22:00 on weekdays).

Almost there... We’ll reopen on Wed 14th April, 11am-6pm! We can’t wait to see you. 📚 To keep us all safe, there’ll be a 6-customer limit, masks required, windows open, and we provide the hand sanitiser. Don’t forget that there are bike racks right outside on Marchmont St, too!
