Texas And Sharleen Spiteri To Headline Manchester Pride

Manchester Pride organisers have announced that Texas, fronted by legendary singer Sharleen Spiteri, will headline this year’s event.

The singer is big LGBT ally and massive lesbian icon, with her songs have been featured in The L Word, and used as the title track to 90s US sitcom Ellen in which she made a cameo.

Chief Executive of Manchester Pride, Mark Fletcher, said:

“2015 marks the 25th anniversary of events celebrating LGBT life in Manchester across the August Bank Holiday weekend. It’s an incredibly special year and the Manchester Pride year-round events calendar will reflect this important anniversary.

“We look forward to welcoming thousands of people to the City over the Big Weekend as we continue with our fundraising aims to raise as much as possible for the various organisations that we support.”

This year also marks Texas’ 25 years anniversary. They first burst onto the music scene in 1989 with I Don’t Want A Lover.

Watch ‘Girl Gets Girl’ Teaser – New Spanish Lesbian Film

Spanish lesbian web series “Chica Busca Chica” has inspired a new film, “Girl Gets Girl”. If you haven’t heard of the web series “Chica Busca Chica” then I suggest you start watching now – its a Spanish L-word of sorts. Hot and humorous the lesbian soap opera takes you on a wild ride through the mixed up love lives of a group of sexy Madrid lesbians including the unbelievably gorgeous Spanish TV star Celia Freijeiro who plays Nines, the bartender at the local dyke bar (think Euro-Shane).


Life smiles on Nines in Miami. She is professionally successful as an illustrator and has a stable relationship with Rebeca. But her whole world is torn apart when it is discovered that she has not met the delivery deadlines for her next project and she has dedicated herself to seducing any attractive woman she has met in the state. In the space of one day, Nines finds herself without money and without a girlfriend.

The time has come to return home, and above all, the time has come to win the heart of Carmen, the heterosexual she has been in love with since she left Spain.

But Nines chooses the wrong time to do this. Turning up unannounced at Carmen’s house, Nines interrupts the “First Period Party” in honour of Candela, the daughter of Monica, the woman who Nines left pregnant on the day they were to be married. And not only that… also present is the woman known as “Sofía please”, the comics publisher to whom Nines owes a significant professional debt. And Javier, Carmen’s ex, with whom Nines always competed, and his 37-year-old pregnant wife. And Fran, the gay friend with a hetero mindset, whose girlfriend Linda is a spectacular transvestite. And Marta, who has finally won over Rai, the neo-punk of her dreams, on the same day that she receives an unexpected visit from her mother… Girl Gets Girl, a party, a daughter, many girls and something else.
