♥♥♥ EVENT FOR DEC 2019! ♥♥♥


DEC7

Toronto's QUEER Slowdance! - A Midnight Queer Edition!

RSVP HERE: https://www.facebook.com/events/1507584426059587/

With a lending library of designated dancers for all you wallflowers, and a dancecard-booklet to set up dances in advance (should you choose to), Toronto Queer Slowdance has all slow songs, all night long! (Except for the occasional intermission when we play the fastest songs we can find!)

It's high school with a happy ending. Come and experience why slow is beautiful, and why love is not ironic.

Fabulous and inspired attire, while desired, is not required. But it would be AWESOME and HAWT. As this is our A Midnight Queer edition, we urge you to dress festively for the holiday season! Whatever festive means to you!

Finally, you do not have to be queer to attend this party, but you must have an open mind, an open heart, and have open arms. Do keep in mind that many of our attendees fall within the LGBTTQIA+ continuum and may or may not be interested in dancing with the "opposite" sex, so if you are stridently straight, this may not be the most receptive community for you. That said, we have a wide plethora of attendees, and it is impossible to know who might show up on any given night.

805 Dovercourt Rd. (1 block North of Bloor, 3 blks. west of Ossington)
Saturday, December 7, 2019

We are always looking for designated dancers for our evenings. If you are outgoing, warm, and willing to undertake the very serious duty and responsibility of inviting wallflowers out onto the dancefloor - if in fact, such a prospect gives you great joy - then please contact the organizers at inconsolablecat@hotmail.com.

Montreal Strip Spelling Bee! - OMGoth Edition!

RSVP HERE: https://www.facebook.com/events/508891669685273/

WARNING: There may be nudity in this show.

The game is played a lot like strip poker, but it's a spelling bee, and it's played in front of a live audience of hooters, hollerers and hecklers who want to see some smart and sexy skin!

As this is our OMGoth edition, we encourage contestants and audience members to wear black, to be gloomy and glum, to look like they are attending a nocturnal funeral. Any contestant who comes in costume, whether half-assed or high-end, will be looked upon more favourably by the judges.

We are also taking contestant sign-ups in advance! But we are limiting early sign-ups to HALF of the allotted ten spellers. Email inconsolablecat@hotmail.com with GOTHBEE in the subject line if you are interested in signing up early!
