Ventanas - part of the Summer Sunday Music Series

Event Location: The Distillery District 2 Trinity Street, Toronto

Led by powerful vocalist Tamar Ilana, VENTANAS weaves in and out of upbeat Bulgarian dance tunes, Greek, Turkish and Sephardic love songs, and heart-wrenching Flamenco dances, leading captive audiences through windows into other lands and cultures.
Ventanas explores the music and dance backgrounds of its members. They revel in sharing and teaching each other their musical forms, rhythms and ways of expressing emotion, and find that in the joy of playing music together, these forms lend themselves easily to be blended and merged. Be it violin on a flamenco piece in 3/4, or flamenco footwork on a Turkish-Sephardic song in 9/8, what truly matters is the communication between artists on stage and throughout the creation process.

If I Loved You: Gentlemen Prefer Broadway – An Evening of Love Duets

Event Location: Sony Centre for the Performing Arts 1 Front Street East, Toronto

Conceived by Rufus Wainwright
World Premiere

Presented by LUMINATO FESTIVAL

Rufus Wainwright teams with Grammy- and Tony-winning music director Stephen Oremus to redefine dozens of the most beloved gems in the Great American Songbook, all love songs from Broadway musicals. In their original productions, these songs were performed as duets by a man and a woman, or by a man singing about a woman. Wainwright’s recontextualizations, performed exclusively by men and to men, fortify the songs’ universality as expressions of love. The groundbreaking evening will showcase Wainwright and an international spectrum of pop, rock, classical and musical theatre stars in unexpected, entirely enchanting pairs.

Featured Artists: David Byrne, Boy George,
Josh Groban, Brennan Hall, Ezra Koenig, Steven Page, Andrew Rannells and Rufus Wainwright

Guest Curated by Sophie Hackett

This exhibition takes a closer look at rich photographic records, and the ways photographs have served to bring to light a sense of collective characteristics, experiences and ambitions for queer communities.

Featuring a broad range of materials from the Black Star Collection at Ryerson University, the Canadian Lesbian + Gay Archives (Toronto), and other prominent collections in the United States and Europe, this range of photographs argues for the continued validity — necessity, even — of making queer people visible, collectively and individually.

Afternoon Tea and Exclusive Tour of the King Edward Hotel

Event Location: Omni King Edward Hotel 37 King Street East, Toronto

Join us on June 21st for a tour of the Majestic and regal, the Omni King Edward Hotel in Old Town Toronto.

This hotel has a long history as being a haven for gay men to meet and mingle. When the hotel opened in 1903, gay men would discreetly meet in the hotel lobby, making careful contact since being gay was illegal and convicted homosexuals would face lengthy prison terms (ironically it wasn’t illegal to be a Lesbian however). In 1998 as more enlightened human rights replaced antiquated Victorian laws, the first official same-sex couple commitment ceremony was held at the King Edward Hotel, five years before same-sex marriage became legal in Ontario and seven years before it was legal in all of Canada

WHAT IT MEANS TO BE SEEN PHOTOGRAPHY AND QUEER VISIBILITY

Event Location: Ryerson Image Centre 33 Gould Street, Toronto

Over the Rainbow is comprised of works by well-known Canadian and international artists in mediums that include painting, drawing and photography. Some of the featured artists include Stephen Andrews, Attila Richard Lukacs, Public Studio (Elle Flanders and Tamira Sawatzky), Justine Kurland, Betty Goodwin, General Idea, Andy Fabo, Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Annie Leibovitz, Herb Ritts, and others.

CAMP FIRES: THE QUEER BAROQUE OF LÉOPOLD L. FOULEM, PAUL MATHIEU AND RICHARD MILETTE

Event Location: Gardiner Museum 111 Queen's Park, Toronto

Presented by GARDINER MUSEUM

SPECIAL EVENT

CAMP FIRES: QUEEN CREATIVITY AS A COUNTERPOINT TO REPRESSION

‘Camp’ provides a perspective on the world at odds with the self-evident and taken for granted. Whether as a critique of good taste, or an exposure of the arbitrary nature of gender roles, ‘camp’ is the gaze of the outsider. Fire turns clay into ceramic and evokes its own associations: warmth, protection and transformation. At Human Rights Watch we are confronted with the dark underside of human experience, the violence and abuse that is the daily reality of queer lives around the globe. But we are also witness to resilience and creativity in the midst of extreme hardship. ‘Traditional values’ and a static view of culture is the rallying cry against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality. Yet creative expression is the lifeblood of any culture and vital to creative renewal.
In his keynote address Graeme Reid, director of the LGBT rights program at Human Rights Watch, will explore the role of queer creativity as a counterpoint to political repression and cultural straightjacketing.
