Take a break from the mainstream. Think beyond boxes and labels and rethink what it means to be queer.
Starting off is Dainty Smith and Les Femmes Fatales, a burlesque troupe composed primarily of women of colour who are fiercely sexy and defiantly glamorous, followed by First Nations burlesque group Virago Nation, on a mission to reclaim Indigenous sexuality from the effects of colonization.
Alterna Queer gets into the music with the infectious glitter, glam and grit of Persons, the genre-defying and terrifying, Partner, and the groove cutting and synth-based musicality of Lal.
Closing the show will be Toronto’s own, Unbuttoned, painting auditory textures and emotions with electronic, pop, alternative, and R&B overtones.
