FemFest 2018 Preview

FemFest, everyone’s favorite annual feminist event, is happening again this month and it’s even bigger and better than last year.

The weeklong celebration of intersectional feminism will feature everything from a curated film festival spotlighting female directors to educational panels and a night dedicated to women of color. This year’s FemFest also welcomes two new additions, including a body positive event and play directed by a new local production company.

Pensacola transgender advocacy group STRIVE (Social Trans Initiative) will kick off FemFest Wednesday, Feb. 14 with a panel on love and relationships within the transgender community where panel members will discuss the complexities trans people can face when dating.
