FUERZAfest - Latino LGBTQ Festival - Public Event


Hispanic Federation is organizing FUERZAfest - New York City’s first-ever Latino LGBTQ Festival. This unprecedented event will take place from May 11th to May 22nd of 2016 at the Julia De Burgos Latino Cultural Center, located on 1680 Lexington Avenue, New York City.

FUERZAfest aims to provide a space for dialogue and awareness of social issues, including the prejudices stemming from ignorance and homophobia that threaten the LGBTQ community.

During the 12-day-long festival, we will have educational workshops, panel discussions, networking events, art exhibits, film screenings, and as the main attraction – a theater competition featuring one-act plays that dive into LGBTQ issues.
