Queer Contact

QUEER CONTACT WILL RETURN 5-15 FEBRUARY 2015

As part of Contact's ongoing commitment to diversity, Queer Contact develops work and presents events throughout the year, for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender (LGBT) communities of Greater Manchester.

Each February, as part of LGBT History Month, this programming converges in a festival featuring the best performance, music, spoken word, and theatre with local young people and performers interacting with the best UK and international talent.

Queer Contact 2014 took place 6-15 February 2014 and featured Opera North and The Tiger Lillies, Joey Arias, Jackie Kay, Craig Hill, The House of Suarez Vogue Ball, My Bad Sister, exhibitions from Pam Van-Damned and Lee Baxter/George House Trust, plus much more.
