This is where you register to the Queer Heart Festival October 2-4.
You only need an email address to register.
There is no registration fee so that everyone who wants to attend the festival can do so, without needing to worry about their finances. Queer Heart is financed though your donations.
Upon registration we ask you to commit to participate in the festival, and attend at least three workshops.
After your registration, please log in to the festival website and visit the workshop schedule. Click on attend for the workshops and events you want to take part in. You will then receive a confirmation email. You can see which workshops and events you are attending on the right side of the website frame.
Queer Heart is financed though your donations. We decided not to have a registration fee so that everyone who wants to attend the festival can do so, without needing to worry about their finances. Your presence is precious and wished in any case.
We acknowledge that people's financial abilities vary radically in different places in the world. This is why we don't have a recommended amount of donation. We want you to assess on your own how much you can give. The fees for an equivalent festival in the Global North are approximately $50-100 USD.
Your donations pay the people who made the festival happen and other related expenses, such as the costs of the website and the Zoom accounts. Donate as much as you can and want. If you can donate more, please do.
You can donate before, during and after the festival, ideally by Mid October so we can pay it out as soon as possible.
Queer Heart has decided to re-donate some of the festival's donations to the Arab Foundation for Freedoms and Equality, a Beirut based organisation that works with sexual and gender minorities and is raising funds to supports those struggling communities in the post-explosion Beirut. The festival will host an event about this topic with guests joining from Beirut. Read about the fundraiser here.
