(Soo) Over the Rainbow

Red Gate Arts Society, 855 E Hastings Street, Vancouver, BC, V6A 1R8

Okay, so we're over it. Over a rainbow that doesn't represents us, our communities, our fam in queer resistance. Over a banner of Pride that prioritizes police brutality over black communities, the tokenization and invisbilization of communities of colour and Indigenous communities. How about we remember each other? Let's be over the rainbow about our queer fams and over the moon about the queer histories that have come before us. Yeah, we like the sounds of that. Come on down on AUGUST 5TH to our old stand by, Red Gate Arts Society! 9PM START, get your summer sweat on!
