Stonewall, the LGBT equality charity has just announced its brand new festival of events, Stonewall Season, which will take place between Tuesday 1 and Tuesday 10 November in venues across Britain, supported by Visa.

Created to celebrate LGBT life and culture, Stonewall Season will feature a range of events, from film screenings, to panel discussions, club nights and a closing event at the Tanner Warehouse on trendy Bermondsey Street.

Stonewall Season will launch on Tuesday 1 November in Manchester, with a panel discussion held at the University of Manchester, with speakers including Coronation Street’s Daniel Brocklebank, trans activist Charlie Craggs and representatives from Manchester-based groups Proud Trust and Rainbow Noir.

It will culminate in a spectacular closing event, with an exhibition and auction of bespoke works of art created by some of Britain’s best-known artists from across the creative industries including Marc Quinn, Henry Holland and Gareth Pugh.

Birmingham gay super club, The Nightingale, is getting involved in the action on Thursday 5 November with a benefit event at the venue featuring club kids, go go boys and a great party atmosphere. £1 of every entry fee will be donated to Stonewall, as well as all revenue from a raffle and collection buckets throughout the night.
