About us

Essentially, Icebreakers is a self-help, mutual support group for gay, bi, and trans-men who present as men. Our members establish social networks through the group and often make lifelong friendships. We’ve been here since 1986 and thousands of men have used the group.

We must be getting something right!

We hope that after you have been coming for some time, you will develop new friendships and a social network. Members usually leave once they have done that, because their main reason for attending Icebreakers no longer exists. Once that happens, we feel that we have done our job!

What happens at an weekly meeting?

For more information about Icebreakers and to find out about coming to a meeting, contact the LGBT Foundation’s Help Desk service on 0345 3 30 30 30. Operators are available to help from between 10am & 10 pm Mon – Fri, 6 pm & 10pm weekends.

You can also e-mail the group at info@icebreakersmanchester.org.uk – this is normally checked daily.
