Press Release


Lady and Trans* Fest Dublin March 2014

This coming Friday March 28th, Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th, a badass queer/feminist D.I.Y. festival Lady and Trans*fest will roll into Dublin like a giant glitterball to smash patriarchy in the face!

Lady and Trans*Fest exists to promote womyn and trans* people within music, art and activism. The festival aims to create a safer space for queers and rebels, and encourage female and trans* voices to be heard. This means that all performing acts will have a majority or consist entirely of wimmin & trans* folk.

This festival has a history internationally and within Ireland as a positive movement and creative form of empowerment. All genders are welcome!

This is a FREE festival, and fundraisers have been organised for the past few months to make this happen. All you have to do is show up and enjoy!
