The Queer Jewish Arts Festival

The Queer Jewish Arts Festival

Sponsored by the Grandchildren of Harvey M. & Lyn P. Meyerhoff Philanthropic Fund

In honor of Pride Month this June, join us for a series of programs celebrating multiple facets of our identities including gender, race, religion and class through film and theater. This festival will highlight local, national, and international artists who are making art with Queer and Jewish content and examine the complexity of how we present ourselves and move throughout life.

Pride Pass: To maximize your experience, take the full multidisciplinary journey and purchase a Pride Pass for access to all three events! Choose between an all-virtual pass or attend the stage performance in-person. All film screenings are presented virtually.
