BYOQ OFFICIAL AFTERPARTY
Bring Your Own Queer (BYOQ) is a free gaytime music, art & performance festival held in Golden Gate Park (between the DeYoung and the Academy of Sciences) showcasing local queer artists.
The impact BYOQ has on the community has been phenomenal – since 2009 we have consistently aimed to foster a network of engaged, connected, queer communities. By featuring local queer musicians, DJs, performers and artists at the historic Bandshell at Golden Gate Park we are creating diverse queer public space as well as being social activists by bringing our festival to a place where queers don’t normally congregate.
In the past, the BYOQ festival in Golden Gate Park has been the labor of love organized by a single person. With the help and support of amazing sponsors and participants--from Honey Soundsystem to Juanita More!-- the festival has continued to get bigger and queerer.
This year it’s our goal to expand the physical and cultural footprint of the festival even further by tapping into the talent and resources of our amazing community.
