Multicultural  LGBT Literary Foundation

preserve, promote, and teach works by lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender artists of color.



The Multicultural LGBT Literary Foundation and the Museum of Photographic Arts is proud to welcome the award winning Black lesbian producer and director Nneka Onuorah for the debut screening of the brilliant documentary The Same Difference for HerWord 2016! The screening will take place on March 26 at 7:00 pm at the Museum of Photographic Arts.

The film has received rave reviews from many LGBT and mainstream news sources including AfterEllen, Autostraddle, VH1, NBC, and The Huffington Post to name but a few. There will also be a fabulous reception where women can enjoy cocktails and mingle with one another and the artist. Be sure to join us for this fabulous event. All funds raised through ticket sales go towards supporting LGBT artists! This event will sell out so purchase your tickets by clicking here.

HerWord, the Multicultural LGBT Literary Foundation’s women’s art event, is unlike any other event in San Diego. HerWord brings together the best Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender (LBT) women writers and artists in order to celebrate the power and brilliance of being a woman—however that may be defined. 

The event is traditionally held each spring and raises critical funds, while at the same time, providing a platform for writers and artists who are all too often marginalized simply because they are women. HerWord is a multimedia event combining literature, film, and visual arts, and is designed to create a full sensory experience. Each year the event culminates with a fabulous after party, at which LBT women and women’s culture are at the forefront. 

Whether it's $1 or $150, your gift goes a long way here at the Multicultural LGBT Literary Foundation.  Every donation lets us continue to tell the untold stories of LGBT authors and artists of color
