We need your support! We have launched the first of a series of three Kickstarter campaigns to help us generate interest and fundraise for GFEST, which will allow us to showcase the culturally diverse and fantastic talent that exists within LGBTQI communities. While the Kickstarter campaign has been largely successful thus far in past few hours, we still have quite a long way to go before GFEST starts in November.

Please do consider donating us to ensure that we are prepared to carry forward this work. Also feel free to spread the word amongst friends, via social media and share our Kickstarter campaign. With your help, we could reach, and possibly even surpass, our goal.

GFEST’s 10th anniversary theme is “Art Protest,” a response to a post-Brexit and post-truth political climate and its impact on LGBTQI culture, true diversity and love. GFEST will run from Monday 13 November 2017 to Saturday 25 November 2017.
