All-female comedy show raises funds to tackle homophobic bullying.

Over 530 people attended Stonewall’s Girls’ Night Out on Monday 24 September at the Bloomsbury Theatre in Soho. The inaugural Stonewall Comedy Gala, supported by g3 magazine, raised over £10,000 for the charity’s Education for All campaign, which tackles homophobic bullying in Britain’s schools and makes sure they support children from all kinds of families.

Jen Brister hosted the show, whose all-female stars included top comics Sarah Millican and Susan Calman, Live at the Apollo favourite Shappi Khorsandi and award-winner Zoe Lyons.

Leisa Rea, Suzi Ruffell, Rosie Wilby and Maureen Younger completed the line-up.

Stonewall Director of Fundraising Catherine Bosworth said: 'We're delighted that our Girls’ Night Out raised over £10,000 to help us tackle homophobic bullying in Britain's schools. A full house had a great night and paved the way for us to do even more to support hundreds of thousands of young people - it really was the best show in town.'

Guests at the sell-out show included singer Alison Moyet, actress Sophie Ward, model Eden Clarke and entertainer Amy Lamé. Ben and Jerry’s supported the event with a give-away of their Appley-Ever-After ice cream, named in support of Stonewall’s campaign for equal marriage.
