Stagecoach’s sponsorship of Turner prize ends over LGBT rights row | Art and design | The Guardian

The Turner prize and its controversial 2019 sponsor, Stagecoach, have parted ways just one day after the partnership was announced.

There was anger and a degree of disbelief when it was revealed on Wednesday that a company founded and chaired by a wealthy campaigner against gay rights would be lead sponsor of the prize this year.

Stagecoach South East had been brought on board by this year’s host venue, Turner Contemporary in Margate, which saw the local bus company as a good match.
