GFEST aims to promote “All Arts” by LGBTQI+ artists, and “All Welcome” to attend the events, to witness the artistic excellence that addresses LGBTQI+ equal rights, and to reduce possible discrimination.

This year’s festival theme is #SociallyEQUAL, and the organisers are proud to present a free entry entertainment evening, full of live acts presenting music, dance, acapella, performance, and poetry at the launch.

Show off your ART PRIDE, if you got talent, flaunt it!

GFEST programme and theme this year queries ‘Whether LGBTQI+ people have achieved full social equality now?’ The festival presents artists, filmmakers, performers, and practitioners, who explore the topic, and showcase the work that demands full and wholehearted acceptance by all, presenting equal rights and social justice.

GFEST artistic director, Niranjan Kamatkar, is excited about presenting the festival in a new format:

“After 10 successful years of GFEST, we are opening up the programme. The new GFEST format enables other artists/groups organise their own LGBTQI+ arts events, and promote them via the GFEST website. This is just the start for the new GFEST, and we have some more plans for the future. We plan to make it more interactive and far-reaching by using the online tools.”

The organisers have invited audiences to join by booking GFEST 2018 Launch event, featuring a spirited star-studded soirée, by performers of ‘The Cocoa Butter Club’, artists Alice Boland-Rhodes, Charan Singh, dancer Sanjay Shetty, digital artist Katy Jalili, and acapella act TStarNay , and many more…  It is billed as an absolutely “unmissable and MUST” evening full of LGBTQI+ arts, videos, music, performers, spoken word, and live acts.

GFEST – Gaywise FESTival® is co-ordinated by arts charity, Wise Thoughts.
