 Queerfest
Queerfest is a Russian pride festival, where everyone can be themselves. Here, no one will be surprised by your gender expression, name and gender of partners (or even their number!).

We unite LGBT people from Russia and CIS countries to show ourselves and the whole society: we are different, we are strong, we are here. And we deserve a better life and equal rights.

Theme of Queerfest

Strength within

We offer to talk about our resources and about the inner support that helps us not to give up and be who we are when it seems that the world is against us.

We propose to approach the topic “Strength Within” from three different levels:

— at the individual level;

— at the community level;

— and at the level of society (post-Soviet in general and Russian in particular).

How to realize your strength? Where and how to find it when it’s in short supply? What gives it and what takes it away, and how to find a balance in these processes? Let's look for answers together.
