About FUERZAfest

In 2016, Hispanic Federation launched FUERZAfest, the first LGBTQ+ Latinx multidisciplinary arts festival in the Northeast which not only celebrated a vibrant community, but addressed critical issues impacting it. Since then, events have been held in New York City, Connecticut, North Carolina, and Orlando to create a space for dialogue and awareness of the systemic barriers and threats faced by the Latinx communities.


FUERZAfest is a multidisciplinary Latinx festival that harnesses the visceral power of art to brings diverse communities together to support artistic risk-taking, incite creative collaboration and experimentation, and celebrate the rich heritage of Latinx queer artists and art.

In light of the current sociopolitical climate, issues of transphobia, homophobia and anti-gay violence resonate significantly amongst Latinx people – which is why the creation of a positive culturally - sensitive space like FUERZAfest is of vital importance.
