Online Event: Queer Women of Pride Virtual Music Festival
Since most of the LIVE PRIDE performances and gatherings, we were looking forward to having been getting postponed or canceled this has added to our already existing feelings of isolation. This whole Social Distancing thing has Left us feeling disconnected from our loved ones and even the rest of the world.
We wanted to find a way to reconnect again and what better way to ignite that connection than with music!?
It is with this spirit that I decided to bring together and produce this all-day Virtual Music and Performing Arts Festival!
Rita Amethyst.. just a music enthusiast!
These performance and freelance artists have lost all their live gigs which they relied on for their livelihood, so we’re hoping to also help raise money to help ease these financial burdens.
We have performers from all over the country taking part in this festival!
Each artist will go on LIVE on their Facebook page and be “cross streamed” on this page.
We’re featuring the following artists in the approx. order of appearance: Times may change so please check back before the show!
