Jerk Off 2023 : A Beacon of Queer Creativity Lights Up the Global LGBTQ+ Scene

Dear LGBTQ+ readers from all over the world, mark your calendars! Starting September 14th, the artistic festival Jerk Off, renowned for its bold celebration of queer art, is back to shake up the global stage. This event is a must-attend for anyone looking to discover the hidden gems of queer creativity.

After celebrating its 15th anniversary the previous year, Jerk Off promises once again a series of vibrant events, spread across ten iconic venues. The opening will take place at MAC VAL, where visitors can immerse themselves in the “Histoires Vraies” exhibition by Franck Lamy. Garance Bonotto will also present “Pot aux Roses”, a performance that delves into the deep nuances of the color pink in pop culture, a symbol often associated with the LGBTQ+ community.

The festival highlights themes that deeply resonate with our community. Performances like “Homo Idiome” and “Detailed Portraits” draw inspiration from homosexual archives from the 80s, reflecting our rich and often overlooked history. Several events, such as the exhibition by the collective Les Idoles, spotlight the transformation and reinterpretation of LGBTQ+ symbols. The Swiss Cultural Center, for its part, will showcase the performance “Eurêka”, featuring the many facets of dancer Marie-Caroline Hominal.

One of the most anticipated attractions is undoubtedly Soya the cow, the audacious alter-ego of artist Daniel Hellmann, who will perform in two shows on September 22nd and 24th. This performance promises to be a highlight for the LGBTQ+ community.

The festival doesn’t stop there. It introduces an audio dimension with the public recording of the JINS podcast, an initiative that gives a voice to the Arab/Muslim LGBTQ+ community. Moreover, the festival concludes with committed evenings, notably with the performance “Between the lines” and the manifesto “Gaze·s”, two events that are sure to leave a mark.
