Shortly about the fest

What is Queerfest?

Queerfest is an annual international festival, which raises issues of human rights, identities, gender, and sexuality. The festival is a place for many different events: photo exhibitions, discussions, films, workshops, tours, and concerts.

Queerfest itself and its events were supported by actors Ian McKellen and Stephen Fry, journalists Vladimir Pozner and Artemiy Troitzkiy, writer Linor Goralik, musicians Lena Katina (t. A.T.u. band), Marina Cherkunova (Total band), Jay-Jay Johansson, Alexandre Bard and «Army of lovers», Boris Dittrich (Human Rights Watch).


This year’s 11-th Queerfest will take place from 19 to 28 of September under the motto «There are other ways». We want to talk about how to see more than society and education limited us to, find ways to live your life differently. We propose to abandon stereotypes. And stereotypes about stereotypes.
