The Bi Arts Festival (Toronto, ON) is an annual showcase of new works by bisexual, pansexual, fluid and 2spirit artists and authors, and takes place Sept. 19 to 23, 2019. The Bi Arts Festival celebrates the power of creativity; encourages community engagement with the arts; and promotes and elevates the many diverse voices that make up the bi+ community. In the face of biphobia and bi-erasure, we create safe spaces for the bisexual community and our allies to come together to create, collaborate, and connect with art. Our events include Shapeshifters – an exhibit by 2spirit artists, hands-on workshops, a zine (CRUSH), an author showcase, storytelling, a performing arts cabaret, art, craft and zine fair, and more. Our events are diverse, intimate, challenging, and inclusive. www.biartsfestival.com

The Festival aims to be a SCENT-FREE space.

Produced with the support of the City of Toronto through Toronto Arts Council. We would like to also acknowledge funding support from the Ontario Arts Council, an agency of the Government of Ontario.

ORORO MONROE (Ze/Zem) is a baby burlesquer that was introduced to Burlesque via Body Love with Dainty Smith and Ravyn Wyngz. Ze has trained with Ill Nana Dance Collective & Belle Jumelles since then. You may have seen zer’s tantalizing act at Femme Fatale’s show “RAGE” or Belle Jumelles Fresh AF. Always pulling at the heartstrings, Ororo is unapologetic about looking into your soul and getting zer way! As a queer black African femme, ze is all about shattering assumptions about normative standards of beauty, sexuality and sensuality.
