Genderfest Winnipeg is a DIY festival celebrating queer identity, history and culture via a multitude of media, interactive and community events.
This years Genderfest events follow a theme of resistance and resiliency; how we connect to, and care for, each other; and the ways in which we celebrate and hold each other close. In keeping with the theme of resistance and resiliency Genderfest will link with other events, actions, protests and info sessions in order to boost the signal of these independently organized events – now is a great time to connect with other organizations that are doing amazing work, find out how you can get involved, or just learn more about what people are doing to mobilize. Lets make each other stronger!!
