Garage star Ms Dynamite is to headline the sixth UK Black Pride next month.

The singer, fresh from performing at Glastonbury, will appear at the August 20th event in Torrington Square, at Birkbeck College, London.

The festival, which celebrates LGBT African, Asian, Caribbean, Middle Eastern and Latin American people, will also offer a range of acts, DJs, food stalls and activities.

Event director Phyll Opoku-Gyimah said: “We are so excited to have secured Ms Dynamite as our headline act for 2011.

“UK Black Pride is firmly established at the leading community led event for all people. It showcases some of the best of Black LGBT people, our lives, experiences and culture, and Ms Dynamite embodies all our values: politically conscious, socially responsible, dynamic, creative and exciting. “

This year, gay rights charity Stonewall is the event’s main sponsor.
