Beneficiaries & Mission

Our mission is to bring the whole LGBTQ community together in the beautiful outdoors to celebrate queer musicians and artists while raising funds for LGBTQ people seeking Asylum.

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 organizations dedicated to providing legal and other assistance to members of the international LGBTQ community seeking asylum.

ORAM – Organization for Refuge Asylum & Migration
One of the foremost organizations supporting the refuge and asylum needs of the LGBTQ.

Guardian Group of the First Unitarian Universalist Society of San Francisco
