The LGBTQ+ Community

The LGBTQ+ Queen Bee started her life as an aspiration of activist Carl Austin-Behan, who was keen to get everyone within Manchester’s LGBTQ+ community engaged in this ambitious art project. A crowd funding website brought in donations from supporters, partners and individuals to Bee in The City. A number of generous sponsors are also acknowledged on the base of this sculpture.
