What makes our Queer West Toronto Festivals successful year after year, is that we are constantly reinventing ourselves, because we are outrageous and positively revolutionary. In 2007 Queer West Fest added new venues and city locations, more performers, vendors, community organizations and new affiliated events.
Gay West Community Network Inc (Queer West) was founded in 2000 and incorporated in 2008, as a not for profit organization. We are dedicated to producing performing arts festivals for the purposes of educating and advancing the public’s understanding and appreciation of performing arts and to educate artists through participation in such festivals and related workshops.
