PETER GAY LIVE: Peter Kay supports LGBTQ over Qatar ON STAGE at sell-out comeback tour – EXCLUSIVE  


PETER Kay joined the coalition of celebrities and entertainers publicly backing LGBTQ people amid a growing global campaign highlighting human rights and anti-Gay abuses in Qatar amid the World Cup, Politicalite can exclusively reveal.

Before his launch at the AO Arena in Manchester last night, our insider snapped the stage displayed prominent rainbow messages with the words “Peter Gay Live” – showing a funny, simple and effective sign of solidarity among Western freedom loving entertainers and nations pushing for change on the issue of LGBTQ rights.

He’s joined the likes of Dua Lipa, comedian Joe Lycett and England player Conor Coady who have publicly stood up against homophobia and anti-gay laws in Qatar – who are hosting the World Cup.

Kay, who was later moved to tears as he was given a standing ovation at the start of his first tour for 12 years made his first major statement on politics, as more stars and celebrities start to use their platforms and power to fight for those still not given the freedom to be gay or love who they love in Middle Eastern, predominantly Muslim countries.

The crowd chanted his name as he took to the stage at Manchester’s AO arena.

He had to compose himself before telling fans: “How am I supposed to do comedy now? You’ll have me in bits… I can’t believe you made me cry.”

It was the first of 110 arena dates that the Bolton star will perform over the next two-and-a-half years.”
