O que você fará

We are a social enterprise that trains those who have experienced homelessness to become walking tour guides. As a transgender woman, Laura explores the history of inspirational Mancunian women who have influenced her journey of transition.

Her exuberant character and cheerful attitude make for a unique and exciting tour of Manchester’s city centre. Her passion for the city's female culture and history is infectious. She truly celebrates the rich past of our radical feminine history by linking the history of women or of a particularly notable woman at each stop. The highlight of the tour is when she delves into stories about Emmeline Pankhurst and the Suffragette movement.

Laura’s powerful tour opens one’s mind to ideas, challenges and stories about strong women, Manchester’s history and homelessness.

As we work with vulnerable people, it's important that guests turn up and don't let them down. Of course, emergencies occasionally arise, so if you are unable to make the tour, please let us know ASAP.

Invisible (Manchester) is part of Invisible Cities, a social enterprise that trains people who have been affected by homelessness to become walking tour guides of their own city.

This tour will be led by Laura. She has been homeless three times since the age of 17 and she is a fully trained tour guide with Invisible (Manchester).

She said a friend once described her as a unicorn and a seahorse. This statement captures her unique traits, or as she says 'rare breed of person', that allows her to flourish as an autistic and transgender woman. In her own words, her tour makes "the invisible visible."

I'm Lauren, and I'm here to coordinate the tour, answer any queries and make sure that you and Laura both have a great time!

Really interesting tour, helped us see Manchester through the eyes of the homeless and learn some new things about the city. Was lovely to hear how passionate Laura was about her future plans after a difficult few years. Loved the discussion on art as well, very insightful. Thanks!

Hidden Manchester was an experience that I would recommend to any family that hopes to educate their children on the crisis of homelessness in our city’s & the need to understand & accept difference & individuality in our communities. It was uplifting to hear our guide Laura’s previous life story & to hear about & be able to support her new life by visiting places of meaning in her community. What an amazing initiative. Take your teenagers.
