Lockdown Laughs for LGBTQ+ Charities

This Saturday (13th June 2020) we’re hosting an international all-star show of LGBTQ+ ComedySportz players to raise money for two fantastic organisations: The Proud Trust and Rainbow Noir.

Raising money for the Proud Trust with ComedySportz

Inclusivity is at the heart of what we do and we believe coming together to play and have fun is the best way to build bridges. We’re delighted to be bringing LGBTQ+ ComedySportz players together from Manchester UK to the west coast of America for this very special online show.

“CSz has always been about bringing the fun and making accessible shows for EVERYONE. That’s why I’m proud that we do PRIDE,” says ComedySportz player Kate McCabe.

ComedySportz has been performing shows online since lockdown went into effect and have been relying on audience donations to support players. For this show however the team are urging audiences to donate to support The Proud Trust and Rainbow Noir, a support group for LGBTQ+ people of colour.

As Braínne, ComedySportz player and manager, explains, “We’re keeping the shows free because we believe representation matters and we don’t want people to miss out on the show if they couldn’t afford to watch, however we will be asking audience members to support our chosen charities if they can afford to do so.”

The Proud Trust is a life-saving and life enhancing organisation that helps LGBT+ young people empower themselves, to make a positive change for themselves, and their communities. Donate here.

Rainbow Noir is a volunteer lead social, peer support and community action group, which celebrates and platforms people of colour who identify as LGBTQ+. Donate here.

The stream will go live on our youtube channel on Saturday 13th June from 7pm BST.  Visit our shows page for a full schedule of upcoming online events.
