This Saturday, June 25, had better be sunny and beautiful because the gays are heading to the Eastside for a day of pride. The party begins at 11am and goes until 5pm at McSpadden Park, off Commercial Drive. How convenient for the lesbians! There will be entertainment to spare. DJ Joi-Zee and DJ T are providing the jams, and Conni Smudge, accompanied by queen of the Eastside Isolde N Barron, is returning as host. There will also be performances from The Bobbers, Black Parade Kings, Norine Braun, Liv Wade, Megan Podwin, Neptune at Night and Backyard Betties. I have no clue about any of them, but I'm pumped!
Also, be sure to make time to stop by the second annual Friends for Life yard sale, run by Van icon Joan-E. There will be snacks and lots of goodies to pick through. The proceeds will be divided between more than 60 programs that help members of our community living with HIV/AIDS or cancer.
Where: The Diamond Centre for Living, 1459 Barclay St.
When: June 25, noon–4pm.
See you there!
