Birmingham LGBT has announced that Manchester Airport has signed up as sponsor of SHOUT Festival of Queer Arts and Culure for the next three years.

The sponsorship deal will enable the festival to continue to deliver an innovative programme of exhibitions, theatre, performance, and film which celebrates queer culture in the 50th anniversary year of the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in England and Wales. As part of this sponsorship the airport will host a VIP reception to launch the festival programme.

Patrick Alexander, Head of Marketing at Manchester Airport, said “We are looking forward to working with SHOUT in what is a poignant year for the LGBT community.

“Following supporting five UK Pride events this year, SHOUT’s ethos really suits our values, and provides us with an opportunity to thank the 270,000 passengers from the West Midlands who choose Manchester Airport each year.

“We cannot wait to come and witness the festival programme for ourselves later in the year.”

Steph Keeble, Director of Birmingham LGBT, said “Birmingham LGBT is delighted that Manchester Airport has decided to sponsor SHOUT and are really looking forward to working with the team there

“I am sure they will become a highly valued partner of ours and are welcomed by everyone in the Midlands.”

This year’s festival will take place in venues across Birmingham from Thursday 9th – Sunday 19th November with tickets on sale now. SHOUT Festival is now in its 8th year celebrating and platforming the experiences and identities of LGBTQ people in the midlands. The festival has recently joined the Arts Council’s National Portfolio.
