This week in (gay) Vancouver we’re all about the women with a trio of events that will be of particular interest to the local lesbian community.
The 12th Annual Dyke Dyke March may be a few months away (it is scheduled for August 1), but the planning is getting underway and they need your help. Here is your opportunity to help ensure the march and festival happens again this year at this Vancouver Dyke March organizing meeting (Apr 12).
The proactively named Sister Spit (Apr 14) returns to Vancouver for a night organizers call a “rowdy, raucous night of queer literary and spoken word performances”. Founded in San Francisco in the 90s in response to some of the misogyny-soaked poetry open mics popular at the time, this new incarnation welcomes artists of all genders as long as feminism, queerness, humour, and provocation are front and centre in their work.
The Leaping Thespians, Vancouver’s only woman’s theatre company bringing stories of lesbians’ lives to audiences, presents Mary Harvey’s A Fateful Meeting of Les Femmes Fatales (Apr 16-25), a murderous comedy about a group of friends who gather for an evening of mystery and murder when the mystery and murder become all too real.
