Art changes people, and people change the world.

The Queer Arts Festival showcases some of the world’s most innovative minds in a context that allows them to be out and proud, as artists. Every year, the Festival becomes a vibrant gathering place where queers and allies come together to foster and celebrate community through creativity.

Artists, audiences, volunteers, donors and partners alike tell us that the Festival has given them a greater sense of belonging in queer communities, and with that, the confidence and courage to stand up for themselves and others. Inspired by the power of art, we have witnessed youth attending the festival transform from bullies to allies right before our eyes.

Each year, the Festival’s success is built upon the inspiring and generous support of our donors and partners. Whether you are able to make a one-time gift, or perhaps commit to sustain the festival with a monthly contribution, your tax-deductible donation helps the Festival commission and incubate cutting-edge new queer work, nurture the next generation of queer talent, and to celebrate with the wider world the best our communities have to offer.

You can help create great art and help combat homophobia at the same time.

It is through the generous support and proceeds from folks like yourself that make presenting art in Vancouver possible each year at QAF and now SUM Gallery. This allows us to showcase some of the world’s most innovative minds in an avenue that allows them to be out and proud as artists. And these spaces become vibrant gathering grounds for queers and allies to foster and celebrate community together through creativity.
Please consider donating to our organization to help continue our promotion of fearless, visionary, unruly and provocative art.
