Queer Arts Festival (QAF) marks its landmark tenth anniversary with the multi-disciplinary summer celebration DECADEnce, running June 16 to 28, 2018 at Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre. The annual festival, which also commemorates Pride in Art’s 20th year as an artist-led organization, features a boundary-pushing, dialogue-igniting array of artistic expression that raises the voices and articulates the experiences of diverse, creators. The 2018 QAF will include the world premiere of Lesley Ewen’s work Camera Obscura; a 30-year retrospective concert honouring Barry Truax’s trailblazing work titled Barry Truax Skin and Metal; Operatic tenor Jeremy Dutcher's performance of traditional Wolastoqiyik songs from his debut release Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa (Maliseet Songs); performances from local art disruptors Su-Feh Lee, MACHiNENOiSY, and Erato Ensemble; the always popular Queeraoke closing night blowout, among many others.

QAF Early Bird 4-Show Flex Passes are now on sale for $69 until April 16 at:
