OTTAWA’S BIGGEST QUEER JAM
HIP HOP, RNB, Dancehall, Reggae etc etc…
★ D-luxx Brown [ queer mafia ]
★ DJ Del Pilar [ homo phono ]
★ Surprise Guests to be announced August 15th so stay tuned for more exciting details!!
Babylon Nightclub is an accessible venue. The washrooms are located on the main floor and are accessible as well (Not easy to navigate with motorized Wheelchair). There is a small lip (approximately 1” ) at the front entrance and we will have access to a ramp if needed.
The washrooms at this event will be gender neutral in recognition that so often gender variant, trans, two spirit and women identified people are at greater risk to violence and harassment. The QM hopes to create safer spaces for folks to be who they are and to enjoy their night free from violence and body policing. This includes making a commitment to providing gender-neutral washrooms.
An evening of magical tails and titillations!
Come and witness the amazing sights and sounds, the bizarre and unbelievable feats, the glitter and spectacle as Ottawa’s favorite not-for-profit performance fundraisers, The SEXUAL OVERTONES, and their special guests put some sparkle in your pants and some magic in your bananas!
See the thrills, the beauty, the excitement and laughter -leave your cameras- but bring your oddities, as this will be yet another UNFORGETTABLE show!
This year’s proceeds will be donated to Rainbow Haven/Jewish Family Services, Ottawa Rape Crisis Centre, Venus Envy Bursary Fund and the Gustafson Family.
Doors open at 8:00pm
Show starts 8:30pm
St. Brigid’s Centre at 314 St. Patrick
