OpenSpace is another key aspect of the festival.

Each year, «QueerFest» creates a space for activists and other initiatives from across the country, and since 2016, from former Soviet-republics, to be featured in the festival. Activists can organize a master-class, a workshop or any other activity that expands on QueerFest’s theme.

In 2015 LBTIQ-space «Magma» (Saint-Petersburg, Russia), «V-Day» campaign (Saint-Petersburg, Russia), LSVD (Hamburg, Germany), «LuBi» (Saint-Petersburg, Russia) participated in OpenSpace.

If you need a space to speak, if you want to bring up an issue that is inside or outside the mainstream LGBT agenda in Russia - please write to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
