Our New Identity: Frequently Asked Questions


After nearly 20 years, we’ve rebranded to Calgary Queer Arts Society, formerly known as the Fairy Tales Presentation Society, and we understand that you likely have questions! Luckily, we have answers!

1. Who is Calgary Queer Arts Society?

We are the same organization, with the same mission, vision and values. We are also offering the same exciting programs, such as Fairy Tales Calgary's Queer Film Festival, OUTReels, the Youth Queer Media Program, the Ally Toolkit Conference, and the Coming Out Monologues, YYC. However, all of our programs now fall under one umbrella, or brand, known as Calgary Queers Arts Society.

2. Why the new identity?

We have decided to introduce a new brand that better represents our organization’s evolution and the diverse programs we offer. Since our beginning, we have developed additional year-round programming, and there is a need to expand our funding opportunities. This includes introducing communities, institutions and the Calgary community at large to our diversity education and youth and story development programs. 

3. Do you still offer the same programs?

YES, absolutely! All of our core programs will remain under the umbrella of the Calgary Queer Arts Society.

4. What’s going to happen to Fairy Tales Calgary's Queer Film Festival?

Other than an updated logo? Absolutely nothing! Fairy Tales Calgary's Queer Film Festival has achieved momentous growth in recent years. It will remain a program name as part of this rebranding project, to keep the identity of the festival as it relates to our programs clear. To this end, we have developed an updated Fairy Tales Queer Film Festival logo, and it will continue to be one of the most cherished programs that the Calgary Queer Arts Society offers.

5. Will email addresses change?

Yes, eventually. However, our previous addresses will be redirected while we undergo this transition. We'll keep you updated as changes occur.

6. Will the social media handles change? 

We do plan to update our social media handles. However, we're taking the transition period slowly. Connect with us at:
