We are seeking individuals and groups that represent diversity, inclusion, and empowerment to perform in our Arts & Culture Festival.

The Gay Games Arts & Culture Festival is opened to established groups and individuals to participate. We are looking for eager and supportive performers for the following categories:

All groups can choose to participate in a one night Gala Performance Showcase on the Festival Village main stage featuring collaborative acts from all performance categories.

Your act or performance does not have to be about LGBTQ+ issues and you don’t need to personally be LGBTQ+, just support inclusion, diversity, and empowerment. This is a celebration of friends who share a perspective for a better world.

Performances become events that offer opportunities for the thousands of athletes and their supporters to meet, socialise, relax and make new friends.
