Greg Thorpe

Profession: Many-skilled freelancer.

Tell us about you: I live in Manchester where I write and edit half the time, and the rest of the time I DJ, direct music and organise events for many different people and institutions, from high profile launch parties to underground queer performance nights.

What inspires you? bell hooks and David Bowie, queer culture, a sense of injustice, a fear of boredom, creative friends, Tumblr.

What do you love about where you live? West Didbsury? My rent is cheap, there are lots of cute dogs and nice bars, it’s 20 minutes to the city and five minutes to greenery.

Favourite local hangout? Volta on Burton Road.

What would your superpower be? Temporarily inhabiting the minds of other people, living or dead.

Tell us a secret. I’m in a yoga pose right now.
