There seems to be a wonderful wave of events popping up all over the place that are more inclusive and participatory. They really work to break down the barrier between performer and audience and that is exciting stuff. That's where a peculiar kind of amazing magic happens.
Anyway, I am coming across more and more of them in my Social Medias and felt that if you like my events, there is a likelihood that you might like these events as well.
Okay that's all! Thanks for subscribing to this thing!
PS. I came up with a joke today!
"Another name for the Vagina Monologues: SOLILOQUEEFS"
EVENTS FOR APRIL 2016!
RSVP HERE: https://www.facebook.com/events/1140537175957872/
You are cordially invited to Toronto's QUEER SLOWDANCE! - PROM EDITION!
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.
PS. Fabulous and inspired attire, while desired, is not required. But it would be AWESOME and HAWT. Since this is our PROM edition, and we will have a FREE photobooth to create memories to cherish, you are encouraged to wear your most dapper, delightful and delicious outfits! Wear the thing you don't have an opportunity to wear anywhere else!
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 LGBTTQ 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.
805 Dovercourt Rd. (1 block North of Bloor, 3 blks. west of Ossington)
Saturday, April 9, 2016
Doors at 9:30, Dance from 10 PM - 3 AM.
$10 admission includes your Dancecard-booklet!
Regretfully, the Dovercourt House is not wheelchair-accessible.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
OTHER QUIRKY EVENTS THAT YOU MIGHT BE INTERESTED IN!
So you probably know by now that I like events that have a bit of a twist or gimmick to them.
For instance, burlesque shows are nice, but a burlesque show where all the acts sing their own music as they striptease will actually get me out of the house. An open mic version of this event with cash prizes will DEFINITELY get me out of the house.
So here, every month, I'm gonna list upcoming events that I come across that might actually get me out of the house.
MONTREAL - LIP-SYNC BATTLE
MONTREAL - THIS REALLY HAPPENED STORYTELLING EVENT
MONTREAL - BEDx (A kind of TEDtalk event for Sex)
TORONTO - HOTEL HOUSE PARTY
TORONTO - SUBWAY STATION ARTISTS NEWSTAND CLOSING PARTY
TORONTO - OPERA PEEPSHOW
If you hear of a quirky event that you think I might be interested in, please email it to me at email@example.com and I might add it to this list! Thanks! It doesn't have to be in Toronto or Montreal but it helps. Cheers!
