The festival is incredibly inclusive and welcoming of all female identified individuals. It will  feature a revisit of Alphabet Soup Comedy (LGBTQ+ show that ran at Plan B for a year and a  half), The DNM Show Live (a live panel talk show) and so much more. LLCF is looking to bring in a major headliner and details will be forthcoming as will ticket information. Corporate  sponsorships are still available.
