About QDF

QDF is an annual festival celebrating LGBTQ+ artistry and community

Founded in 2019, the QUEERING DANCE FESTIVAL is by and for LGBTQ+ movement artists. Through performances, events, workshops and more, QDF highlights the artistic work and issues on the minds of the queer, trans and gender-nonconforming dance community in the East Bay.

Produced by the QDF Steering Committee, a non-hierarchical collaborative of queer dancers,  QDF presents dance through a queer lens, elevating the work and diverse voices of local LGBTQ+ movement artists from all backgrounds.
