The 5th International Queer Festival – QueerFest 2013 — will take place in St. Petersburg on September 19-28, 2013. The Festival is a non-commercial project, with the goal of promoting tolerance in the Russian society and supporting the LGBT community (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people), living in increasingly aggressive and homophobic environment.
Queer Festival supports the right of everyone to be and express oneself, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. For 10 days the Festival creates a space in St. Petersburg free of homophobia, xenophobia, sexism and any other form of discrimination.
