Ever-evolving energy is the very fabric of Berlin. In this spirit of evolving GEGEN, BRENN. and Ipek Ipekciouglu (female:pressure) created the very first “QueerPort Festival” in Berlin.
A port is historically a place in which communities prospered, a place of cultural encounter, a point of passage, a connection. A port is a welcomed refuge for those navigating rough waters or during a storm. Based on these premises we thrive to create a hub where we can exchange our energies, where we can merge our cultures, where we can export our ideas.
We understand this collaboration - this PORT - to be a continuation of the solidarity needed in our community and beyond.
QueerPort is celebrating and appreciating the differences in style and approach to queerness by doing what we love most - dance together.
Welcome to QueerPort Festival Vol. 1.
