Gay festival something to shout about.

BIRMINGHAM is preparing to Shout with the arrival of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender festival next month.

Shout, between November 4-23, takes the theme of Invisible/Visible and will focus particularly on the place of black and Asian LGBT people in Birmingham's cultural offering.

The festival brings together a range of different activities including film, theatre, visual arts, music, performance, literature and community with activities taking place across the city at venues including mac, Town Hall, Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, clubs, bars and pubs.

The line-up includes novelist Stella Duffy, comedian Paul Sinha, artist Qasim Riza Shaheen and gay rights activist Peter Tatchell.

Festival producer Dave Viney says: "This year's festival is set to be bigger and better than ever with a number of new high profile artists and exhibitions being brought to Birmingham.

"Shout provides a unique opportunity for Birmingham's LGBT community to celebrate its diversity and to engage the whole city in queer arts and culture."
