SUPPORT QUEERFEST

15 people during the whole year and about 50 during the Festival work to make a cultural and human rights LGBT event of an international scale in St. Petersburg possible.

15 people during the whole year and about 50 during the Festival work to make a cultural and human rights LGBT event of an international scale in St. Petersburg possible. Festival is supported by international human rights and LGBT organizations, but it needs support of Russian LGBTs, too.

No help is too small: we need money to print works of young authors, materials for installations, tea and coffee for the visitors, renting equipment, printed materials... Even 100 roubles in the organization's account will make the Festival brighter

We aim at weakening the rigid social frames and provide space for the people to express themselves. We believe that "cure" and sanctions for minorirties should be replaced with respect and acceptance of their lifestyles, and social exclusion should give way to integration.

We want to show that gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgenders are not exeptions, but a part of the changing, diverse and complicated normative spectrum, while the attempts of the authorities to enforce artificial "norms" and to put real life into a rigid gender and sexual paradigm are bound to fail.

This year artists from Russia, Ukraine, Spain, France, Sweden, Great Britain, US will present their art at the Festival. We will have exhibitions, discussions, master-classes, concerts... Almost all Festival events are free for the visitors.

We invite the LGBT-community to make their contribution in our common undertaking - preparation and carrying out of the major annual LGBT event in the country.
