What The Punk Fest is part is our LGBT+ Safe Space Project. 1 of 4 endeavors, WTP is a rare and bona fide resource for education and preservation of the music and dance cultures born of the 60's, 70's, and 80's— how they're done, and how to teach them. Our guest teachers and performers are pioneers of their craft. WTP for many, serves as once-in-a-lifetime access to these dance icons, to learn from, and express their personal growth. WTP also serves to honor dances born from the LGBTQ community by offering a global platform to learn the rich history behind the culture, the people, their struggle, and their impact on the arts and society as we know it today.
