Manchester Pride has announced the next of its Transcript events in the run up to the big weekend which runs from Friday 28 – Monday, August 31.

Transcript is part of Manchester Pride’s cultural programme called Superbia, a word deriving from the Latin word meaning Pride.

Soap fans can join writers and actors from the popular TV series Coronation Street and Cucumber writers and actors discuss the concept and development of transgendered characters in television and how the story moves from script to screen.
