Contact in Manchester has announced the full line up for its Queer Contact Weekender—marking LGBT History Month 2019.

Breaking from the tradition of a week-long festival, this year’s LGBTQ+ arts and culture celebration will run as a compact weekender on February 8 and 9 in various venues across the city and featuring some of the usual elements of the annual festival, concluding with the Manchester Vogue Ball.

As a trailblazer event ahead of the Weekender, and to kickstart Contact’s In the City Part 3 programme, Bristol-based theatre company Ad Infinitum brings its latest play No Kids to The Lowry on Friday, exploring the social anxieties of same-sex parenting.
