Southern Fried Queer Pride is proud to announce our first satellite festival in our sister city, Durham, North Carolina!


Now more than ever, it's important for Southern queer and trans communities to connect and build strong ties in this political climate. Celebrating local Durham, and regional North Carolina artists, activists, and communities, SFQPxDurham is here to add it's own distinct flavor and ingredients to the SFQP regional recipe.



This year's SFQPxDurham festival takes place Thursday, Oct 19th thru Saturday, Oct 21st and will feature music and performance nights, workshops, community building events, parties, and more!

We have opened submissions for the festival! Please take a look below at the various submissions to take part of. If you have any questions, feel free to email us at

Submit a Workshop or Event!

At SFQP, we make sure to have programming that is both engaging and well-rounded. Our workshops, skill shares, and events for the festival are all submission based. Want to throw a zine workshop? Submit it! Want to put on a Latinx community event? Submit it! All ideas are read and considered.

SFQP's mission is to honor the arts, and we do so with a closeout music night at the end of the festival every year! This showcase features a variety of styles of performance art (drag, live music, spoken word, etc.) and is the biggest event of entire festival.
