Drag show and live music event, part of Up & Up Fest and Eastside Studios Pride Week 2022!
This event is being held on the stolen, ancestral territories of the Musqueam, Skxwú7mesh-ulh, and Tsleil-Waututh nations. As we live and organize queer space as settlers on these lands, we have an obligation to continuously work to repair harms perpetrated upon Indigenous communities, presently and historically. Settler colonialism has brought (and continues to bring) untold violence to these lands, via unlawful resource extraction, racism in medical and foster care systems, and the intergenerational trauma of residential schools. One way we will strive to give back to and support these communities is by donating a portion of proceeds from this event to Healing in Colour, a resource platform for BIPOC and directory of BIPOC therapists with anti-oppression values.
