HOW CAN YOU PARTICIPATE?

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:

  • Exhibition Dance (Dance Groups, Ballet, Hip Hop, Jazz Funk, Contemporary, Kpop, Choreography, traditional cultural dances, Artistic Pole Dancing, etc) 
  • Performance Art and Exhibition Cheerleading (Chinese Opera, Rhythmic Movement Storytelling, Spoken Word, Short Story Theatre, Fitness Pole Dancing, Martial Arts, etc.) 
  • Choir
  • Concert Band
  • Cabaret (Drag Queens, Burlesque, Boylesque, Magicians, Stand Up Comedy, Exotic Pole Dancing, etc)

 

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.
