This festival from local contemporary movement arts organization Disco Riot will feature artists whom identify as part of the queer, trans and gender-nonconforming dance community in San Diego and beyond. Queer Mvmnt Fest will empower and showcase LGBTQ+ artists from all backgrounds through performance, workshops, discussions, and classes geared for affinity groups as well as open to the general public. The festival will further highlight the work of BIPOC artists within the LGBTQ+ community, examining and centering the need for addressing inequity through an intersectional lens.

This festival is the first of many actions towards representation and celebration of queer and BIPOC dance artists in the San Diego community.
