GFEST - Gaywise FESTival is the premier LGBT annual cross-arts festival in London - a platform for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer artists, organisations and venues that promote LGBT and queer arts.

Organised by arts charity Wise Thoughts, GFEST features queer artists and talent across the arts, including visual arts, theatre, dance and performance, short films, debates, workshops and parties.

In 2010, over 100 artists took part in GFEST 10, with over 8,000 people attending events. The launch of GFEST 08,09 and 10 [1] took place at the Palace of Westminster making it the first ever LGBT arts initiative to be launched at the House of Commons.[2]
