Thank you to everyone who supported the Fest in its inaugral year in 2015. We are happy and honored to welcome the second annual QTPOCFEST.

QTPOCFest Tucson is a free 2-day indoor fest that celebrates the QTPOC community in Tucson and its surrounding areas. It will feature live performances, workshops, art displays, vendors, live DJs and much more. We are organizing QTPOCFest because our cultural and ethnic identities are, indeed, radical tools of liberation and have long queered sexuality and gender. Where our voices have been overlooked because of pervasive racism, misogyny, transmisogyny, transphobia, and homophobia, QTPOCFest Tucson aims to elevate the experiences and celebrate the artistry and knowledge of Queer and Trans people of Color.

We are low-income folks working together to make this happen by saving what we can from our checks so we are asking the QTPOC community and our allies to help us create this space for resource sharing, artistry and liberation. We want to provide *free* food options, funding for the QTPOC artists who share their work, any necesarry modifications to the venue that will facilitate accessibility, and pay for the venue space. We will accept donations of skills, resources, crafting and supplies (i.e. mics, amps, speakers, tables etc.) - both before and on the day of the Fest. Contact us if you have non-monetary donations.

We want to thank everyone who continues to breathe life into QTPOCFest and safe/liberatory spaces. Let’s continue to inspire each other as we demand our right to be free!
