What is GFEST?
GFEST is an annual LGBTQI+ arts festival. Taking place across the UK during November each year, GFEST is run by Wise Thoughts, a charity based in Haringey in north London.
As a festival, we curate and promote a programme of LGBTQI+ arts events, including dance, drag, film screenings, art exhibitions, readings, comedy and talks.
2019 will see the 12th GFEST take place from Monday 11 November to Saturday 23 November. With the theme of #QueerQueeries, this year’s festival will be provoking discussions around queer identity, what it means to be queer and different attitudes towards the term ‘queer’.
Take a look at what’s happening in GFEST 2019 here.
