The larger over-arching goal of our festival is to make an impact on LGBTQ immigration rights by raising desperately needed funds to help LGBTQ people being violently persecuted in places like Africa and Russia, successfully seek asylum in other countries where their lives will not be in danger.
A portion of the proceeds of this festival will go to ORAM, JFCS/East Bay’s LGBTQ Refugee and Asylee Program and the Refugee Guardian Group – organizations dedicated to providing legal and other assistance to members of the international LGBTQ community seeking asylum.
