SapfoFest - First Queer Festival in the Baltics
SapfoFest is the first independent community-initiated Festival in the Baltics, which seeks to connect and empower the queer community, fight prejudice and discrimination, as well as increase awareness and visibility of queers in Lithuania and the rest of Eastern Europe. Even without any major institutional support, for the 4th time this year SapfoFest is growing and expanding through volunteering, services in-kind, crowd funding and in-kind donations. A lot of determination by its organizers, volunteers and increasing number of participants (2012 – 70; 2013 – 100; ir 2014 – 300) have succeeded in creating a learning, sharing, empowering space for queer and LGBT+ community & allies in Lithuania and the Baltics. Through powerful tools of education, culture & knowledge sharing we seek to mobilize our resources and capacity that are necessary to bring social change and create the society of the future!
