Contact Theatre’s beloved celebration of Queer culture returns for 2021.

We’ve been teasing this one for a while, but now we can bring you the full details of Queer Contact 2021 in all its vibrant glory.

After over a decade of events in our building across Manchester, this year we’re going to a whole new venue – the internet. Yes, this year’s event is a fully digital extravaganza delivered straight to your screens.

No dress code (we’re sure you look fabulous in whatever you’re wearing), and plenty of time to get settled in with four days exploring LGBTQ+ culture past, present and future. Get ready for everything from talks to cabaret acts, plus a dance party beamed into the comfort of your home.

Check out the full details, dates and time for each event below.
