Birmingham’s annual queer arts festival, Shout, will this year be presented online, due to Covid-19, and take place from 5 to 15 November.
In a statement, organisers said: “Although the programme hasn't been officially announced yet, we're excited about this fun and experimental festival, as we head online to celebrate digitally.
“Highlights include the queerest of house parties, prefixed by workshops on queering your existing wardrobe and how to get made ALL THE WAY UP with a fabulous make-up tutorial, our community day - which will showcase Midlands artists and musicians (of course there will be something for the kids, too) - a workshop on using illustration as a form of meditation for mental wellbeing, and much, much more.
“We're also working with the marvelous CineQ to create a film programme worthy of both of our names.
“Stay tuned for official updates on the programme. Hope you're as excited as we are.”
