Montreal FAMOUS SPEECH KARAOKE at the CCA for Nuit Blanche -- MARCH 3, 2018
RSVP HERE: https://www.facebook.com/events/168536390436287/
Yes, for Nuit Blanche Montreal this year I have teamed up with the CCA (Canadian Center for Architecture) to do a very weird event where we take excerpts from a variety of famous televised speeches and offer them up for people to read aloud to a crowd! It will be a first come, first served sort of situation, like actual karaoke. We go starting from 10 PM to probably 1 or 2 AM depending on demand.
Montreal Strip Spelling Bee! - Insane Gown Posse Edition -- MARCH 9, 2018RSVP HERE: https://www.facebook.com/events/166386667478606/
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 Insane Gown Posse edition, we encourage contestants and audience members to wear gowns. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org with GOWNBEE in the subject line if you are interested in signing up early!

Contestant sign-up at 8:30 PM sharp!
Bee from 9 to midnight
$10 at the door.
(Contestants do not pay cover and get a free drink!)
Please note that we must cap our number of strip-spellers at 10 to ensure an expedient and entertaining evening.

Toronto Queer Slowdance at the Gladstone Hotel - Divas Edition! - MARCH 10, 2018
RSVP HERE: https://www.facebook.com/events/2156871114541721/
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. As this is our DIVAS edition, you are encouraged to dress to impress as a DIVA in something festive and formal, whatever that means to you!
Also, as this is our DIVAS edition, 90% of the music selected for the night will be from incredible DIVAS, both past and present.
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.

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 email@example.com.
