Gender Bender is an international Festival introducing the Italian public to the new imagery related to gender identities, sexual orientations and body representations stemming from contemporary culture.
Gender Bender offers a series of events ranging from film showings, to theatrical productions and dance performances, visual arts exhibitions, installation, round tables and conferences, live concerts and performances by musicians and djs, and clubbing events.
It is a real model of how differences can give a contribution to the construction of a more rich and welcoming society from the human, social and cultural point of view.
The festival takes place annually in Bologna, Italy, since 2003, and is produced by Il Cassero LGBT Center.
It is part of Bologna Contemporanea, the festival network that operates in the city with an international overlook.
