The Queer Arts Festival in Vancouver is an annual artist-run showcase of queer arts, culture and history. It celebrates the unique creative expressions of visual and performing artists who identify as part of the queer communities. QAF features a curated visual arts show, a community art show, and 3 dynamic weeks of cutting-edge performances and workshops from all artistic disciplines, including music, dance, theatre, literary and media arts.
QAF is the baby of the Pride In Art Society, Vancouver’s home for the creative bisexuals, gay men, intersexed, lesbians, pansexuals, transsexuals, third-gendered, transgendered, two-spirited, queer and questioning in British Columbia, Canada. For info about this year’s festival go to our main page!
