The Vancouver Men’s Chorus paid tribute to the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign with a sold-out series of four shows called Queens! culminating in its closing performance on Sunday, May 13. Xtra was there, backstage with videographer Angelina Cantada, to capture the men and the festive mood.

“It’s always entertaining when you see 90 fully grown gay men get their Glee on,” says Queens! co-producer Jamie Foster.

“It’s also a real fraternity, a real community of guys,” says second tenor Victor Cutting. “We just have a lot of fun together.”
