More about Love Your Rebellion…
Designed with diversity in mind, Love Your Rebellion’s Babefest was created in 2016 in Fort Myers, Florida by Angela Page. After the success the first Babefest, Page moved north to St. Petersburg where Babefest took place at Fubar in May of 2017. In 2018, Babefest added a second date, expanding its reach with shows in Fort Myers at Millennial Brewing and in St. Petersburg at the Bends.
The annual arts and activism festival brings bands with diverse members together. Babefest also features a marketplace with vendors who support the LYR mission. Love Your Rebellion is a 501(c)3 that empowers marginalized groups through the arts.
Love Your Rebellion’s mission is to empower at-risk populations through the visual and performing arts, literature, and education. Love Your Rebellion’s annual zine publishes art and writing by marginalized populations, and the annual Babefest showcases music by women, queer and trans people, and people of color.
