#SLAYFESTNYC is an inclusive arts and culture festival for queer/trans/non-binary POC. A hub for forward thinking styles and looks, highlighting the most dope and innovative artists. We are shifting and remaking the image of culture and affirming how the LGBTQ+ community will exist and transform the future.
