ColorFEST 2016 will be held on April 15-17, 2016, at National Technical Institute of the Deaf in Rochester Institute of Technology.

ColorFEST 2016 is an annual conference of deaf/ASL community members who are college students and identify themselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and/or asexual (and allies).

The $25 combo pass includes drag show, five meals (including a food truck and a banquet), an art activity, and workshops covering identity awareness, advocacy efforts, and LGBT rights. Our keynote speaker is Mark Wood, a renowned director/producer of ASL Films. Workshops include a deaf LGBT panel about personal experiences of adopting a child and discussions on diversity in color that go beyond the standard rainbow. For the full schedule and speakers, visit http://www.colorfest2016.com/. To purchase your $25 combo pass, visit the ColorFEST 2016 website.
