The York Lesbian Arts Festival (YLAF) was founded by Jenny Roberts, and began as a book reading event in 2000.[1][2] The 2007 event was held on York Racecourse.[3] The festival continued for several years.

In 2013 it was announced that:

" THE inaugural York Lesbian Arts Festival 2013 will be held at York Guidhall [sic], St Helen’s Square, York, on August 10 from 10am. 'This festival is an entirely new entity, not to be confused with any previous lesbian and gay festivals in York,' says producer Mei Wilshire, who is running the one-day event from her office in the York Council for Voluntary Services Centre in Priory Street".
