We are equally honoured and excited to confirm that Gaylife will be the main sponsors of the 2015 VIP Tent, at the annual trans* celebration, ‘Sparkle’ this summer.
The event, now in its 11th successful year will take place on Saturday 12th July and Sunday 13th July in Sackville Gardens. The VIP tent is being introduced for the first time this year, offering more facilities than just a bar, so that those that wish to can pay a small charge to enter, can drink, eat and watch the entertainment in a little more comfort, whilst knowing that the charge helps towards keeping the whole event free to attend.
Sparkle trustee, Tony Cooper said “Gaylife is a wonderful partner to have on board in 2015, showing that Sparkle and the Trans community are a large part of the diverse community in Manchester. The introduction of a VIP tent within the free event area will help raise much needed funds to keep Sparkle a free event to attend. Gaylife have had articles covering everything from trans* people in the community to trans* allies, and have been great supporters of TDoR (Transgender Day of Remembrance) and other trans* events within the city.
Speaking for Gaylife, Editor Ady Blake said, “It’s a great opportunity to get involved a such a huge weekend, at (literally) grass roots level. Sparkle is a great event and a great charity, supporting a part of our community who are all too often overlooked. I look forward to seeing you all there.
