Fierce! Queer Performing Arts Festival!

We are now the Fierce! Queer Performing Arts Festival. For the past six years that we've been lighting up the world, though our heart began with burlesque (and we will always have a special place in our heart for burlesque), we have always welcomed all of our queer friends to participate in our festival. So, this year we decided that our name should reflect our inclusive model. As always, we want to be a home for ALL forms of performance, a home for ALL talented queers. So, if you are a burlesque performer, a drag king or queen, a musician, a sideshow performer, a magician, a ventriloquist, a singer, a hula-hooper, a bellydancer... WHAT EVER YOU ARE... We Want YOUR Talent to be represented in our festival. 

Only the biggest, queerest party on the planet! 

May 9-12, 2019 - COLUMBUS, OHIO!


Fierce! will honor the history of and diversity within the queer performing arts community -- celebrating a spectrum of age, race, ethnicity, class, body type, access/ability, and gender expressions. Fierce! will provide kinship and celebration for all, and highlight the talents and contributions of queer and allied performance communities and performers throughout the world.


Fierce! is the first festival to honor the talents and uniqueness of performers across the globe who identify as queer. 
"The biggest naked queer party on the planet!"
