The LGBT community in Birmingham has been told that have an important role to play in order for the city to become the UK’s first City of Culture in 2013.

According to Pink Paper, Councillor Martin Mullaney, Chairman of Birmingham’s Big City Culture bid committee, said to Midlands Zone magazine: “As Pride and November’s SHOUT festival show, the LGBT community in the city has a lot to offer both culturally and socially to people from all walks of life, and this can only become even more so if we win the bid.”

He added: “But while Pride and SHOUT provide specific celebrations of gay culture, what I think makes this city unique, and can only become more so with all the events capital status would bring, is the way LGBT and other cultures are becoming an ever more integral part of the wider scale cultural, social and artistic programmes we have on offer.”

The battle for Birmingham to be awarded the title of City of Culture is hotting up as the winner will be announced in July.

It is between Birmingham, Derry/Londonderry, Norwich and Sheffield
