The Ohio Lesbian Festival is a not-for-profit, volunteer driven womyn only event designed to promote womyn’s community, music and art. The Festival was founded on the premise that lesbians and queer womyn need opportunities and spaces to recognize and support each other, to define our culture, to find our own strengths and to be empowered. All womyn are welcome!
Years ago the founding mothers made the radical political decision to use the word lesbian in the name of the music festival, at a time when it was not socially acceptable and generally unsafe to do so. The Ohio Lesbian Festivalcontinues to carve out space created by lesbians, but is open for all women to enjoy, share community and connect in a rare and powerful way.
