A world premiere, some Vegas drag and antiques? Yep, just another diverse week in Vancouver as we present our picks for what’s happening over the next seven days.
Queen Bee Empire (Apr 10) gets its world premiere at the Rio Theatre. Described as a raunchy and campy DIY film it follows the sexcapades of friends Tracey, Stacey, Lacey, Kacey and Macey over 24 hours during a hot and sweaty summer, the movie is the full-length sequel to Best Slumber Party Ever which appeared at the 2012 Seattle Hump! Festival. With its warnings of nudity, adult themes, sexual references and graphic sex scenes, Queen Bee Empire is sure to be a sell-out.
Go east young man for Vegas Live (Apr 12) as the Royal City Pride Society presents Vegas drag artist Mr. Bobby Drake. Hosted by LeeAnn Keple with additional performances from comedian Julia Stretch and burlesque from Diamond Minx, the evening is a fundraiser for the Royal City Pride Society.
Something old, something new, something borrowed … oh wait that is a wedding. We’re talking about the 13th anniversary of the Kerrisdale Antiques Fair (Apr 12 & 13). This bi-annual favourite features over 250 tables and booths of 18th, 19th and 20th century antiques and vintage collectibles, making it the largest event of its kind held in Vancouver. Remember the garage sale mantra: no early birds!
