IMAGE of the Sitges Queer Fest 2022 Poster


The image of this year's poster is the work of the popular illustrator Ignasi Blanch, another queer artist who lives in the Garraf region, and who has lent the association Colors Sitges Link for this year's Sitges Queer Fest.

In turn, the poster has been designed by the artist Joan Escofet.


Ignasi Blanch was born in Roquetes, Baix Ebre.

After graduating in Fine Arts from the University of Barcelona, he continued his studies in Berlin, where he specialised in printing and engraving techniques at the Künstlerhaus Bethanien centre. Coinciding with the fall of the Wall, he was selected as the only Spanish representative in the international East Side Gallery project. He lives and works in Barcelona as an illustrator.
He has received many awards, such as the Premio Crítica Sierra de Oro 2006, the Premio Librero de Álbum ilustrado 2008.


He has recently published the solidarity book LIV ON with the singer and actress Olivia Newton-John.

Vermouth & Colloquium

1st October

At 12:00 h.

Mercat Vell.

What is a non-binary person? And queer? What does gender have to do with sexuality? What does gender expression mean? Does it ever have to do with gender role? What do they call "intersexual"? Why do we now use the neuter when we talk? What...?


Society is changing, and so are the concepts that until now have been accepted and assumed without question. New terms to name what has always been between us.


We bring three experts on the subject: María Melgarejo (jurist), Juan Ramón Quintana (journalist) and Lorena S. Gimeno (sexologist) from Asexuados_as.


Free activity.

Vermut & Jazz With Vicky Branch

2nd October

At 12:30 h.

Mercat Vell.


Maybe his face rings a bell. Or his name. Or maybe not... But when you hear her sing, you'll recognise her straight away. One of the most spectacular voices that passed through the TV show, LA VOZ 2017 where she reached the semifinal.

At the Sitges Queer Fest she will do what she loves the most: singing jazz while you have a vermouth (first drink included in the price).

Queer Talent Show

2nd October

At 18:00 h.

Mercat Vell.


Queer Talent Contest.


It will have an exceptional jury: the actors Jimmy Shaw and Antonio del Valle, the singers Cristina Falcinellà and Dave Zulueta. And Rubén Cardoso like Mistress of Ceremonies.

And your vote as the public counts too.





*In the free events, we propose the reverse box office.
What is the reverse ticket office? It is an exercise of responsibility and maturity where the viewer must bear in mind that the production and exhibition of a show has costs that include, among others, the worthy remuneration of the artists. Taking into account this and its economic possibility, the spectator establishes the price of the ticket, once the show has been seen.
