Festival Dates: June 9-15, 2024


Join us for San Diego’s only queer-focused movement-arts festival, Queer Mvmnt Fest. Under the direction of local queer dance artists, Desiree Cuizon and Trystan Merrick, the festival features artists who identify as part of the queer, trans and gender-nonconforming dance community in San Diego and beyond. This festival empowers and showcases LGBTQIA+ artists from all backgrounds through performance, workshops, discussions, and classes. The wide variety of free programming offers opportunities in queer focused spaces as well as sharing with the general public. Queer Mvmnt Fest highlights the work of BIPOC artists within the LGBTQIA+ community, examining and centering the need for addressing inequity through an intersectional lens.
