First impressions of Birmingham
Mike commented that his first main impression of Birmingham was of a very big, prosperous city. He didn't want to leave Manchester but the job offer was a good one. When Mike moved to Birmingham from Manchester, he got a flat in Moseley, and lived in the area from 1987 until 2006.
When asked whether he met any gay men in Moseley he replied that he did over the years, referring to the fact that 'there's always been this joke hasn't there on the south side of Birmingham that gay men live in Moseley and the lesbians live in Kings Heath and there is a certain amount of truth in that so I didn't find it a particularly difficult place to live in as a gay man."
