LUSCIOUS Queer Music Festival

LUSCIOUS Queer Music Festival is Northern California’s first LGBT music Festival that’s happening for three days from August 22nd to 24th at the beautiful Saratoga Springs Retreat Center in Upper Lake California. The festival will include live music, DJs, dancing, camping & fabulous food vendors. Festival participants will experience an exceptional line-­up of national headliners including 2014 Grammy Nominee Mary Lambert, New York’s inimitable Justin Vivian Bond, Bay Area comedian Marga Gomez & the legendary Cris Williamson. Other performers include Jon Ginoli of Pansy Divisio, Skip the Needle featuring Vicki Randle, Magic Mouth, Gina Breedlove, Brian Kent, Melanie DeMore, Matt Alber & Holcombe Waller. DJ’s include San Francisco’s Page Hodel, DJ Justime, DJ Lamont, DJ Dr. Sleep & many more. The festival organizers goal is to make an impact on LGBTQ immigration rights by raising desperately needed funds to help LGBTQ people being violently persecuted in Africa & Russia & successfully seek asylum in other countries where their lives will not be in danger. A portion of the proceeds from this festival will go to the Organization for Refugee, Asylum & Migration (ORAM), Jewish Family & Children Services (JFCS) /East Bay's LGBTI Refugee & Asylee Program & Guardian Group of the First Unitarian Universalist society of San Francisco. These organizations are dedicated to providing legal & other assistance to members of the international LGBTQ community seeking asylum.
