This Pride Month, FASHION is giving space to local LGBTQ2S+ voices in the creative community to share what it means to them — and how they’ll be celebrating.

When Toronto-based drag queen Miss Moço appears at the PlayDate Pride event (with food and drink included with your ticket) on June 27, she’ll be hitting the stage with other reigning stars such as Jada Hudson, Kiara, Juice Boxx, Steak and Manny Dingo; the event will be hosted by Tiffany Boxx.

“I think Calgary has one of the best, bar none, drag scenes in the entire country.”

Despite the ongoing closure of queer spaces throughout the country, drag is popping up in venues all over, from straight cowboy-themed bars to libraries, bowling alleys, and cruises out on the ocean.

Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver may be Canada’s best-known drag hubs, but there are vibrant, captivating performers all over.
