Another diverse week in (gay) Vancouver includes a little Irish luck, a queer cabaret and a play about family in our picks for the next seven days.
Monday brings out the Irish in everyone with St Patrick’s Day celebrations (Mar 17) at 1181 in the West End. Green beer is on tap served with a side of music from DJ Karsten.
Heaven’s Door in Vancouver’s West End is host to A Queer Cabaret (Mar 21) featuring traditional style burlesque, queerlesque solos and duets that promise to challenge gender stereotypes and extra special boylesque after midnight.
In Cantonese it means family. Ga Ting (Mar 22-30), playwright Minh Ly’s story of homosexuality and Chinese culture, gets its world premiere in a co-production from The Frank Theatre Company and Vancouver Asian Canadian Theatre.
