The Manchester Concord Committee

Some of the committee members will always be present on a Wednesday evening. They are shown here to enable people to recognise some faces when they arrive to make it easier for newcomers.

Mary the Legs

Mary, aka 'Mary the Legs' - has been with Concord for over 20 years and hosts the Wednesday night meetings. Mary also organises other activities such as the Christmas Dinners, nights out when the Ladyboys of Bangkok come to town, Rocky Horror Show trips, etc, etc, etc.

Mary has her own blog to keep you all abreast of what's happening in Manchester - see the link above or you can contact her by email on if you would like to say hello before you come along on a Wednesday night.

Our hostess Mary will always give you the warmest of welcomes and put you at your ease.

She has taken the role of Chairperson to the committee.

Tina has been coming for many years and seems to manage to wear a different outfit every week, which I guess is a major part of the fun. She is a train buff and goes on several holidays every year to travel the rail systems of the world. She is also a solicitor and is able and willing to give legal advice to any member that needs this kind of help. If you prefer to contact her by email her address is

Pauline Sometime. came on the committe april 2012


"Hi, I'm Pauline. I have been a member of Concord for the last 4 years, usually getting to meetings at least once every couple of weeks. I owe a great deal of thanks to the club, as it was through Concord that I first came out in public and started the process of discovering a new identity within myself. Like many of us, I still keep some separation between male and female roles, but now frequently get out and about as Pauline. Over the last couple of years I have become more involved in transgender support; as well as serving on the Concord committee, I am a committee member of the TransForum TG support and discussion group, and I am also the editor for the North West TransListings ezine. While having no firm political leanings, I do take a great interest in transgender equality and hope that my actions can help towards this in some small way."
