For the first time since she moved to the city, Misty was invited to host a night in the Northern Quarter back in February.
She said: “The amount of gay customers has risen and many of them are choosing to take dates to the Northern Quarter. “Perhaps it gives them a sense of being more ‘normal’ and therefore lends a seriousness to what they are hoping will be a new lasting relationship.”
