Artistic Director of GFEST and Wise Thoughts, Niranjan Kamatkar said, “Due to lack of funding, we are entirely dependent on the online community support and social media to get the word out. Thanks to a number of LGBT people, the word is getting out and I hope we can have a successful event this year due to everyone promoting events on Facebook pages and events, GFEST Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, blogs and YouTube etc..”

A number of online news channels including London24, events listing pages and Haringey Council have featured the event online.
