A Celebration of Activism for the Anniversary of Stonewall

Please join us for a day of activism and art and fun in Washington Square Park in the heart Kansas City. This is a free, non-corporate event that rejects commodification of queer identity. This festival will bring together a progressive community that is keen on educating each other about the intersectionality of our work for social justice in Kansas City. Non-profits will have interactive and educational booths to teach you all about queer history and activism! Bring your frisbees, hula-hoops, volleyballs, and picnics for this fun, free day in the park!

MQF will be a drug and alcohol free event.

There will be performances by:
* The B'Dinas
* Under The Black Sails
* Absurdum
* Cuntaloupe
* Fae of Wildwood
* DJ Psyclops
(More acts to follow)
