Queer Fest is a fest for fanfic that focuses on the experience of being queer. It replaced the LGBT Fest, which stopped in 2010. Queer Fest was announced in the LGBT Fest livejournal:

While there have been some great discussions in the previous posts about having a community open year round to prompts, some of us really wanted a fest to celebrate the lgbt experiene. To that end, queer_fest is open for business! Much of the rules have been shamelessly stolen from lgbtfest, and the format is entirely the same.[1]

To date, rounds have been held in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014. Prompting and prompt claiming happens in March-April, posting in May-June.
