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 week-long series of events featuring the best performance, music, spoken word, and theatre with local young people and performers interacting with the best UK and international talent.
Previous festivals have featured the likes of The Tiger Lillies, Mother’s Ruin, David Hoyle, Eat Your Heart Out, Rosie Wilby, Dickie Beau, Jonathan Mayor, Jonny Woo, Rosie Lugosi, and Danez Smith.
