As a lesbian and a Londoner, I’m excited about GFEST, an LGBT arts festival filled with cutting-edge exhibitions and performances by new and established artists. GFEST is a celebration of the wonderful diversity that makes our queer communities so vibrant, and our capital city so rich. It’s so inspiring to see LGBT arts showcased in this way. I hope GFEST just gets bigger, bolder and more beautiful, year by year!

At a time when arts funding is threatened by the government cuts, it is more important than ever to support GFEST and the many LGBTI artists and performers that it show-cases. They are in the frontline of queer culture, articulating our identities, experiences, triumphs and tragedies. Go see.

Proud and happy to support GFEST 2010, which does so much to promote the work of LGBT artists everywhere. You couldn’t do better than add your own support. Much love”.
