ATTENTION! ATTENTION! SHARPEN YOUR LIPSTICKS. SHINE YOUR LEATHERS. STRAP ON YOUR HARNESSES. TIGHTEN YOUR BOOTS. WHIP YOUR HIGH PONIES. GATHER YOUR GLITTER. FILE YOUR NAILS TO A FRICKIN POINT. TONIGHT WE STORM THE MARGINS.

Get Bent is a night for anyone who’s tired of being told to stand back. We will not stand for violent and exclusionary rhetoric becoming mainstream. Sex workers are powerful. Trans women are holy. QTBIPOCs of all ages and abilities are our future.

Not only is homonormative, yt-dominant, cis-centric space oppressive and exclusionary, it’s also boring as hell. Tonight we honour all rad freak queers and the people who love them.

Proceeds from this event will go to Maggie’s, which provides education, advocacy and support to assist sex workers to live and work with safety and dignity. They support workers of all genders from all areas of the sex trade.

SWEAT. DANCE. SHINE. MAKE A MESS. SMASH THE BINARY.

IT’S TIME TO GET BENT.

👄 Hot weirdo drag (Show starts 10:00 p.m. SHARP)
