SPECIAL GUEST: DJ COZMIC CAT
DJ Cozmic Cat has played the soundtrack to some of our greatest (maybe most dramatic?) pride memories! Whether it's spinning at one of the Pride Stages or hosting the infamous Cherry Bomb with collaborator Denise Benson, Cozmic Cat has brought so much joy, movement and community into queer people's lives. At our show, Cozmic Cat steps away from the turntables and chats to us about what her incredible career has taught her about the meaning of pride, community and connection.
LEARN DANCE MOVES FOR ANY PRIDE PARTY
Pride is filled with dance parties for every genre, vibe and flavour. But are you equipped with the right moves to be able to dance at ALL OF THEM??? Well, type-A control freak, Gabrielle wants to ensure she's prepared for any and all Pride dancing scenario. For this show's how-to segment, we're going to learn the DOs and DON'Ts of looking HOT on the dancefloor. All of this will result in a dance-off between Gabrielle, Slim, Kaleb and then ... you! The audience. Guaranteed to end in chaos.

Thoughtful and true, T. Thomason’s songs shine through the darkness in the world. Since he began releasing music as a teenager, Halifax-based Thomason has been on a journey of discovery. Lead by curiosity as his way of being, Thomason approaches songwriting as a commitment to “Say tough things tenderly,” a practice that reveals an impressive depth of wisdom, clarity and courage in the young artist. Thomason’s attentive, confident presence is felt in all aspects of his music, in songs that build from ballad to banger, in songs that balance confession, confrontation and resolution, in songs that lay it all bare. Highly recommended for sweet bbs in their truest colours, and specifically guaranteed for fans of MUNA, Maggie Rogers, Troye Sivan and Kim Petras.
