Bi+ Arts Festival 5

September 23rd to 26th, 2021
Celebrate bi+ visibility at our 5th annual festival. We will be virtual again this year, sharing music, our author showcase, short films, stories and activities for all ages.

We are looking forward to seeing you – virtually – for our 5th annual Bi+ Arts Festival. This year you can set your own Festival schedule and watch from home (no more running from venue to venue).

Stop by our Youtube channel anytime (ANYTIME!!) between Thursday September 23rd, early, and Sunday September 26th, late – where we will be sharing poetry, short films, fiction, music, burlesque, activities and workshops, and on Sunday September 26th at 7pm EDT a live-streamed zine launch for our new zine FLIRT! It is presented in partnership with QT Literary Magazine, and supported by Glad Day Bookshop and Pride Toronto.
