Annual LGBTQIA+ queer arts and culture festival Feast in Adelaide has opened registration for its 2021 event.

Artists and event organisers can register to participate in the festival as part of Pridevember (November)’s month-long celebrations of inclusivity and diversity. A focus on this year is the fact that it’s the 50th anniversary of the creation of the term ‘transgender’.

The term was first coined by activist and trans pioneer Virginia Prince, popularising the term in her advocacy and writing in the 1970s.

“Feast welcomes participation from all LGBTQIA+ artists and event organisers, and this significant anniversary is an opportunity to reflect upon what has been achieved for transgender people as well as what still needs to change,” Feast General Manager Helen Sheldon says.

“Globally the transgender community still faces many barriers to equality, some countries have made it a criminal offence and transgender deaths are on the increase.”

Last year’s Feast was affected by COVID with limited capacities and event cancellations. While the trans community is a focus on the 2021 event, all LGBTQIA+ artists and organisers are invited to participate and attend, from drag, cabaret, theatre, dance, music, visual art, literature and beyond.

Head here to register. Registrations close 28 June.

Adelaide Feast Festival 2021 runs from 6-28 Pridevember (November).
