Out & Wild is the UK’s first queer women’s health festival

The UK’s first wellness festival designed specifically for queer, questioning and curious women and non-binary women is set to take place this summer. Out & Wild Music Festival is located in Laurennie, Pembrokeshire and will take place between 10th and 13th June 2022 for three days and nights.

During the "Novelty" event, ticket holders can enjoy a variety of activities, covering comedy, health, music, sports, wild swimming, poetry, interactive workshops and more. As with any other festival, camping will be an option for attendees, with campervan options also available.

Festival organizers say allies who attend "with an open mind" are also welcome to the festival, although Out & Wild was created with queer women and non-binary people in mind. Tickets for the three-day event are available now.

Out and About LGBTQ co-founder and festival presenter Polly Shute discussed with PinkNews how Out & Wild creates a safe and supportive space where people can embrace new experiences against the backdrop of the beautiful Welsh countryside.

Shute went on to say that the response to "Out & Wild" has been "incredible." Festival organizers continued: “From the quality of our sponsors and partners, to the variety of experiences on offer, and the talent that will be performing, not to mention the support we have received from the Welsh Government, it has given us as good a platform as it is committed to We are offering funding for three years as part of our commitment to becoming the most LGBTQ-friendly country in Europe.”

Issy and Rachael, founders of LGBT FIT, will curate the festival's wellness area. According to PinkNews, the pair will "deliver sessions that appeal to all levels."

Fitness enthusiasts say: “This is a great opportunity to try a new fitness experience in a fun, safe and supportive environment.”

The announcement of the new festival comes after London Pride was forced to apologize "unreservedly" for "abhorrent" homophobic comments made by one of its members who were exposed in 2021. A year later, London Pride responded to Divas - the world's leading magazine for LGBTQ+ women and non-binary people - by responding to the derogatory remarks and announcing that new leadership would adopt a "zero tolerance policy for inappropriate behaviour".
