TIGLFF Needs You Today

TIGLFF’s programs would not be possible without the dedicated support of our staff, more than 300 volunteers and our Board of Directors. Volunteering for TIGLFF is fun and a great way to connect with the LGBTQ+ community and make new friends.


We have plenty of volunteer opportunities - please let us know how you would like to be a part of TIGLFF this year!


We need help year-round on a number of committees. Put your skills at social media, event planning, graphic design, networking, database management, T Shirt design and more to work with us. Help us build the festival and be part of something that has been an institution in Tampa for almost 30 years. You'll make friends for years to come and memories for a lifetime.

At The Festival

Ticket takers, ushers, party volunteers, hospitality staff.... you name it, we need it! You'll receive a free ticket to a film screening for each shift you work, and we have volunteer T-shirts for you as well.

If you have any questions, please contact TIGLFF's Volunteer Manager, Ty Maxey, at ty@tiglff.com or 813.805.7300.
