Outspoken at Number 70 Oxford Street, Manchester, 9 February 2019, from £8 - Book now

The annual Queer Contact Outspoken event returns – this time to former Cornerhouse, No 70 Oxford Street – for a spellbinding showcase of poetry and spoken word performance to mark LGBT History Month in 2019. Curated and hosted by Manchester poet and former young programmer Mandla-Rae, the afternoon aims to celebrate Manchester’s queer women and non-binary artists.

Taking part will be the likes of Afshan D’Souza-Lodi (in a line-up replacement, stepping in for Billie Meredith), Young Identity poet Ella Otomewo (recently seen performing brand-new pieces as part of the Festival of Leaving night Ode On The Road at Manchester Jewish Museum and at the Poetry Pop Jukebox), Verbose favourite Maz Hedgehog (new pamphlet coming soon) and Bryony Bates – also tracked down in January launching a collaborative Generic Greeting Collective pamphlet, cash/sex, with Peter Barlow’s Cigarette co-organiser Joey Frances.

Tickets are £8 concessions and £10 full price.
