Curtain-raiser to Queer weekend

Published: 12 January 2019

The Queer Contact Weekender, February 8 and 9, marks LGBT History Month 2019.

Breaking from the tradition of a week-long festival, this year’s celebration from Contact will run as a compact weekender in various venues across Manchester, featuring some of the best-loved elements of the annual festival, concluding with the Manchester Vogue Ball.

As a trailblazer event, Bristol-based theatre company Ad Infinitum brings its latest play, No Kids, to The Lowry on February 1, exploring the social anxieties of same-sex parenting.
