Welcome to the GFest – gayWise LGBT Arts Festival blog.
We are currently working on updating the new website and the call for submissions for this year’s GFest will be announced shortly!
GFest is the premier LGBT annual cross-arts festival in London, UK – a platform for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer artists, organisations and venues that promote LGBT and queer arts.
Organised by arts charity Wise Thoughts, GFest features queer artists and talent across the arts, including visual arts, theatre, dance and performance, short films, debates, workshops and parties.
In 2008, over 60 artists took part in GFest 08, with over 2,000 people attending events. The launch of GFest 08 took place at the Palace of Westminster making it the first ever LGBT arts initiative to be launched at the House of Commons.
GFest ’09 will be held 9 – 22 Nov 2009, the third year for the festival.
