LARF festival

This poster advertises the Lesbian Activities and Recreational Festival (LARF) of 1992. A range of physical activities were on offer, including windsurfing, archery and softball. The heading – 'wanna have a larf?' – and the cheerful illustration suggests that having a good time was the event's main purpose.
