The Queer Jewish Arts Festival

The Queer Jewish Arts Festival

Join us for a series of programs celebrating LGBTQIA+ stories and experiences through film, theater, music, and dance. Through film screenings and talkbacks, panel discussions, lectures, musical experiences and play readings, this festival will highlight local and national queer Jewish artists who are making art with Jewish content, and examine intersectional identity and creative expression. 

To continue our goal to build community by offering you dynamic, inspiring and meaningful programs at the intersection of Jewish and Queer identity, we are curating a diverse array of programs this June and partnering with several local organizations in the winter and spring highlighting programs the organizations present at the intersection of Jewish and Queer identity.
