BOLD is a non-profit society registered in the Province of British Columbia Canada. Its mission is to raise the visibility of older lesbians, and to provide a venue to meet lesbians and to share information and opportunities for learning, networking, and organizing. As importantly, BOLDFest creates a safe place for lesbians to form life-long friendships, and relationships. For the last eleven years, BOLDFest - the Bold Old(er) Lesbians & Dykes Conference and Gathering - has attracted lesbians aged 40 up to 90's - and much younger women - from across Canada, the US and Australia!We convene at the Coast Plaza Hotel each year. The Coast Plaza is a friendly, gay-friendly and dog-friendly hotel in the heart of Vancouver's WestEnd Gaybourhood, with stunning views of mountains and the Pacific Ocean.
BIG ANNOUNCEMENT: 2017 is the last year the Coast Plaza Hotel will be open! The new owner will be turning the site into condos and possibly a boutique hotel. This has been BOLDFest's "home" since its start in 2005. The staff are family to us, and to each other. We plan a big celebration at BOLDFest 2017 to celebrate our long-standing friendship with the Coast Plaza's supportive and friendly staff. I know many of you will want to be there too, and especially those who haven't been to BOLDFest yet! BOLDFEST will be continuing and the search is on for a new location in 2018. Be sure to be with us this year!
