A QUEERLY FESTIVE DINNER & SHOW

December 21, 2017

As winter settles itself in, and the holiday season comes into full swing, we understand that it can become an incredibly difficult time for some. Many members of our community find themselves displaced and without family, which is further exacerbated during Christmas.

To combat this, nine non profit organizations have come together to curate a holiday dinner and show hosted by the Palomino Smokehouse, which is BY DONATION. We want to ensure that each and every person within our community has an opportunity to take part, connect with friends, meet new ones and celebrate our diversity!

Also, attendees will have the opportunity to view phase one of the LGBTQ commemoration project, where over 400 stories of Calgary community members have been collected, from all over the city!

This event is ALL AGES until 8pm

5:30pm – Door Open
6:00pm – 8:00pm – Buffet Dinner
7:00pm – Local Kings & Queens Perform
8:00pm – +18 show including Kings, Queens and Burlesque
