The Art of the 'Gender Bender Festival'

The annual Gender Bender Festival in Italy aims to expand perceptions of gender through art and culture, starting with its distinctive poster art.

Gender Bender is an international festival introducing the Italian public to new imagery related to gender identity, sexual orientation, and body representation stemming from contemporary culture.

The festival has grown to include film showings, theatrical productions, dance performances, visual arts exhibitions, installation, roundtables and conferences, concerts and DJ performances, and clubbing events. The festival has taken place annually in Bologna since 2003 and is produced by Il Cassero LGBT Center.

Below are samples of some of the intriguing graphics used over the years to promote the program. You can learn more about the Gender Bender Festival here.
