DJ Craig Dominic was voted runner up for best DJ in Xtra 2010 in the last instance of “Xtra’s Best”. His signature ‘Jack of all trades’ style has given a new perspective on the DJ scene blending top 40, urban(R&B & Hip Hop, etc), house & more into one cohesive experience, like few others can. Less than a year into his career he started Battle Pop, a self produced event for fans of artists. He has DJ’d countless special events, countless venues and still continues to have his residencies, currently at Crews & tango on Saturdays.

The Queer Mafia
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.
