Welcome to Queer West Founded in 2001, incorporated as not-for-profit Ontario charity in 2008 as Gay West Community Network Inc.. We have fun producing performing and visual arts festivals and events for the purposes of educating and advancing the public’s understanding and appreciation of performing arts and to educate artists through participation in such festivals and related art workshops.

The mission of Queer West is to achieve respect and equality within a supportive environment, it responds to the needs of the local neighbourhood and the broader Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transsexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTTQ) communities in Toronto Ontario.
