Alternaqueer

Take a break from the mainstream. Think beyond boxes and labels and rethink what it means to be queer. Starting off is Dainty Smith and Les Femmes Fatales, a burlesque troupe composed primarily of black women and women of colour who are ercely sexy and de antly glamorous, followed by First Nations burlesque group Virago Nation, on a mission to reclaim Indigenous sexuality from the effects of colonization.

Alterna Queer gets into the music with the infectious glitter, glam, and grit of Persons, the genre-defying and terrifying Partner, and the groove cutting and synth-based musicality of Lal. Closing the show will be Toronto’s own Unbuttoned, painting auditory textures and emotions with electronic, pop, alternative, and R&B overtones.
