What is BOLD Fest?
BOLD Fest is a conference for lesbians aged 45+ – and younger women. Bold Fest is a non-profit society and its mission is to raise the visibility of older lesbians, and to provide a venue to meet and to share information and opportunities for learning, networking, support and organizing. The conference attracts women from across Canada, the United States and even as far away as Australia.
“Ageism is rampant in society in general, and in the lesbian community we have our own internalized ageism,” says Pat Hogan BOLD Fest organizer. . “We need to speak honestly about it, and it’s painful. We define each other by our exterior to a certain extent. It is true with men and women in the gay community and society at large.”
BOLD Fest celebrates Lesbian Lives and Culture of BOLD Old(er) Lesbians and Dykes!
