WRFL, in partnership with the UK’s VIP Center, is excited to announce Queerslang 2016, a music and learning festival put on in celebration of Lexington’s lesbian, gay, bi, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, and ally community! This year’s festival will span two days, starting the evening of Friday, Sept. 16th continuing on into the night of Saturday, Sept. 17th.

Saturday will kick off with free community workshops hosted at 21C Museum Hotel. Workshops will take place in two rounds, Round #1 starting at noon and Round #2 beginning at 1:30pm, and will include topics from activism, to identity/self-care, ally training, and more! These free workshops will run from noon-3pm and are open to all ages.

The festival will end with the concert Saturday night, starting at 9pm at the Al’s Bar complex. Headlining the show is Perfume Genius, the musical moniker of Mike Hadreas. Perfume Genius explores his own experiences as a gay man in his intimate, and critically acclaimed music, offering hope and empathy to listeners. Also performing is female fronted Brooklyn-based trio Boytoy, known for their lofi garage-pop cassette tape sound. Lexington local Jeanne Vomit-Terror will also be performing, bringing their own special and elusive brand of gender bending electro-clashy disco-pop.

More information about the festival, including Friday events, additional performers, and ticketing will be announced at https://www.facebook.com/events/574920856043104/ in the coming week.
