From the producers of Jock Night and #BeMoreMartyn

Now in its third year, OutStageUs will celebrate new LGBT+ writing from Greater Manchester and beyond. A night of drama, comedy, film and spoken word to showcase our region’s unique LGBT+ community.

In this, the 50th anniversary year of the Stonewall Riots, when the New York Police Department raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York’s Greenwich Village, OutStageUs will present works that reflect the past, present and future of LGBT+ activism.

Join us for a funny, outrageous, touching and uplifting journey down the cobbles of Canal Street with short plays written by some of the region’s most exciting writers.

This is an evening celebrating Greater Manchester’s rich history of activism and defiance, a night of strength and optimism exploring LGBT+ themes from our City Region and across the globe.
