This online celebration of LGBTQIA+ culture is the first of its kind. Before us, there was no global queer annual event that brings together different gender identities and sexual orientations of people together around one cause: the arts.

While this celebration is always online to be as inclusive as possible, we also hope to have in-person festivals around the world at different locations once the world recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic. Our festival has eight categories of mediums to be explored by our community and critiqued by queer experts in those specific fields.

The categories are literature, visual arts, craftwork, film, music, photography, theatre, and new media.

For each category, there are Gold, Silver, and Bronze awards given based on audience participation in voting and based on the scoring from the expert judges.
