I felt that QALDF went out of their way to create an accommodating experience where everyone was welcome by personally interacting with volunteer staff, providing ASL translators, and offering workshops focused on being comfortable in our own bodies

The festival centered and celebrated non traditional beauty standards and it felt safe to show up as my unlimited self

I love that all gender expressions were able to lead and follow. Everyone was friendly and treated people as equals. It was great to see so many Afro Latinx folks at the forefront of the organizing and performances

I loved seeing a safe space for the LGBTQ+ dance community. Everyone was welcome regardless of color, gender, age, or sexual orientation.

QALDF was such a special space. It was like a glimpse into the world we could create where everyone is safe and celebrated for showing up authentically

As a trans woman, I got to chill at a pool in a cute 2 piece bathing suit and people wanted to dance with me. It's an incredible feeling that I had yet to experience! I felt more than just tolerated at the festival as a whole, I felt desired and celebrated.

 It's felt like a battle to just be gay and female presenting in this world, and your festival allowed me to feel safe, accepted, and celebrated. I'm in tears thinking of it. I talked to my therapist about it and truly you've raised the bar for all festivals but also just the space I create and participate in, in my life. Thank you for what you've created.

I was overwhelmed by how positively the space felt. I felt comfortable baring more skin without being objectified or judged, and it made me realize how little I have that in the rest of the dance community.


This is what they say

When Queer and Trans people are given a Safe Space to be their Unapologetic Selves
