Tampa Bay International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival presents The Evolution of Drag – Drag Through the Decades! Glamazon and drag performer/producer Daphne Ferraro brings her smash hit multimedia drag extravaganza to St. Pete. A unique mix of comedy, dance productions, history lesson and dazzling drag costuming, the show takes audiences on an exhilarating voyage through ten decades (through the eyes of a drag queen). Ferraro will be joined by Florida’s top female impersonators.
SUPPORT LOCAL DRAG QUEENS. NOW AN ENDANGERED SPECIES!

A little taste of a past performance. New acts, new costumes! Some favorite performers return and some new performers have joined the cast!
Friends of the Festival, Inc. (FOF) is a non-profit (501c3) organization that produces the Tampa Bay International Gay & Lesbian Film Festival, which began in 1990 through the outreach of several local community based organizations. The first Film Festival was created as a fundraiser under the name Pride Film Festival, followed by Suncoast Film Festival. Then in the late 1990’s became known as the Tampa International Gay & Lesbian Film Festival (TIGLFF).
Since 1989, TIGLFF has showcased thousands of films for the LGBT community of Tampa Bay. Located primarily at the historic Tampa Theatre on Franklin St., TIGLFF has helped usher in a renaissance of Tampa’s downtown.
In 2005 FOF began expanding content to include a year-round film series with screenings in both Tampa and St. Petersburg FL. Since 2015, the festival has committed to making its programming easily accessible to all of the communities that make up the entire Tampa Bay area.
In 2023, we celebrated our 33rd annual Film Festival, we look forward to highlighting through film the artistic, social, and political changes that are impacting the global LGBTQ+ community.
