Marie Robertson, of the Ottawa Senior Pride Network (OSPN), is encouraging our city’s queers to slip into their dancing shoes.
Saturday, May 11 is the OSPN’s third Vintage Queers Dance, and Robertson says the event is always a place where gay men, lesbians, bisexuals, allies and trans folks can converge in a friendly atmosphere.
“The main attraction of the Vintage Queers Dance is definitely the music,” she says. “Our DJ plays music from the late ‘60s, ‘70s, ‘80s and early ‘90s.”
From Al Green to KC and the Sunshine Band, the Vintage Queers Dance will feature “the music that we seniors remember from our heydays in the bar scene,” Robertson adds.
Attendance has ballooned since the first event, and a fourth dance is already on the books for Oct 5.
