A hard-hitting documentary is included in a week filled with parties as we present this week’s picks of things to do in (gay) Vancouver.
Oscar-winning filmmaker Roger Ross Williams’s documentary God Loves Uganda (Apr 15) will screen as part of Reel Causes’s monthly salon of socially conscious films in partnership with The Shanti Uganda Society and the Rainbow Refugee Committee.
Not So Strictly Ballroom, Vancouver’s same sex ballroom and latin dance organization, goes old-school as it hosts an Easter Bunny Hop (Apr 19) with DJ and instructor Geraldine Goyer (aka GiGi). An all-levels dance lesson is included and a partner is never required.
Portland’s infamous night for flannel rubs and beardy fun Lumbertwink (Apr 20) travels north to Vancouver for one big night with special guest DJ NARK from Seattle. The evening also features Lumbertwink Portland photographer, Wayne Bund and Vancouver’s own DJ Jay Douglas, plus go-go lumberjacks and 100s of furry faces.
Plus a couple of other events we’re excited about this week:
- Hershe Bar (Apr 17), Vancouver’s popular women’s party, continues at Red Room Ultra featuring She-jays Riki Rocket and Jenna J.
- DJ Nikki Fever and DJ Killdear present a one-night only evening of Queer Disco (Apr 22) at the Astoria Pub.
