My Gay Paris: Join the amazing Jerk Off festival!

For its forth year, Jerk Off brings to Paris its spirit of freedom and creativity. Jerk Off is not like any other festival: it intends to be the queerest festival of all. A week long of events will make you discover various artistic fields and interesting nightlife events. Jerk Off Festival is taking place from October the 19th until the October the 30th.

The goal of Jerk Off Festival is to show how diverse and creative the queer culture is. It’s about diversity, respect and tolerance. A lot of foreign artists will be able to present their work, and they come from all over the world, from Ivory Coast to Lebanon, from Morocco to the USA. It’s also a good occasion to meet people who claim to belong to Paris alternative scene, as opposed to mainstream and traditional gay culture which might appear too consumerist for some.

At the festival, you will be able to experience a small part of Berlin explosive nightlife with the Kamikaze Queens at the Klub, in partnership with the magazine Bend Over. The vanguard of Paris clubs, the Point Ephémère, will host the performances of the Iranian dancer Afshin Ghaffarian. The Jerk Off party will take place at the Centre Barbara. There will be also films such as short films and documentaries shown at the Latina, a cinema located right in the Marais. Lastly, there will be also art exhibitions, with the exhibit CENSURES at the art gallery Emilie Bannwarth. The festival will end on sunday the 30th of October with an electro brunch, Küss Küss, at Le Bouche B. Again, the atmosphere will remind you of Berlin. Paris is often said to be a sleepy capital compared to the frenetic Berlin: Festival Jerk Off brings a little of Berlin to Paris to prove the contrary!
What is at stake is the freedom of artistic creation, which is about freedom of speech, right?

So if you like art, whatever art it may be, and if you like to party and meet creative people, Jerk Off Festival is where you want to end up, as it’s getting colder in Paris.
