Lesbians Benefitting the Arts

Lesbians Benefitting the Arts (LBA)  is a not-for-profit, 100 % volunteer driven organization.  We are the producers of the Ohio Lesbian Festival which celebrated its 30-year anniversary in 2019.  It is our mission to support and promote lesbians and work to build a global womyn’s community that honors and celebrates ALL Womyn.  We produce events and promote artistic and entrepreneurial endeavors.  We are committed to creating and holding space for womyn to express, empower and explore.  We believe that womyn together are a force that has, does, and will continue to change the world with passion, love and persistence.
