Want to get involved???

Bay Area Ladyfest will be a celebration of music, film, performance and art from womyn, trans and gender non-conforming artists from the Bay Area and beyond; as well as a positive space for discussion, investigation, education and fun! We hope to make it a thought provoking experience that will encourage people to question beliefs about gender, feminism and sexuality.

If you would like to present a workshop, perform at Ladyfest, show your artwork/film, or be a vendor, please click the submissions link above for more information!

Please keep in mind that this festival is a celebration of all things fabulously femme, trans, womyn, and gender non-conforming. Preference will be given to groups or art that is reflective of this.
