GFEST – Gaywise FESTival is London’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Intersex (LGBTQI) cross – art festival for all.
London’s premier LGBTQI cross-arts festival, GFEST is a platform for LGB & T, Queer and Intersex artists, organisations and venues to promote LGBT and queer arts.
Produced by arts charity Wise Thoughts, GFEST features the best of established alongside fresh or young artists and queer talent working across the arts. Events range from exhibitions, group and solo performances, film screenings, debates, creative workshops and parties. The arts and culture festival also helps profile human rights issues and makes a creative case for ‘Equality in all walks of life.’ GFEST takes place annually in November in various venues across London.
We hope GFEST will return back in 2013. We would like to thank all the artists / filmmakers who submitted their work. We are keen to work with the artists & filmmakers in future wherever an opportunity presents.
We recognise and value the support extended by number of community members, venues, funders, partners and all the artists who made the 5 years of festival activities exciting and memorable, despite the enormous funding challenges over the last three years.
Thank you all for your kind and generous support. We hope we will be able to work with the artists in different ways and that the torch will be carried on by others presenting the talented LGBTQI artists and practitioners excellent work.
