Tainted Presents: Joystick
Date & Time
Fri, Apr 7, 10:30 PM - Sat, Apr 8, 2:00 AM
This event takes place on the unceded Indigenous land of the Coast Salish people including the territories of the Musqueam, Skxwú7mesh-ulh & Tsleil-Waututh nations. Organizing queer events and taking space as settlers on this land, we must actively work to mend the damage done to Indigenous communities in the past and today.
This is a queer space that welcomes all sexualities, genders, races. Everyone is welcome to come and enjoy the experience, but we won't tolerate homophobia, transphobia, racism, sexist, ableism or any other unacceptable behavior. We will ask you to leave if you aren’t abiding by these rules.
April 7th is the release of the Mario movie, and we're so excited to see our favourite Italina plumber kick Bowser butt on the big screen. After you check out the movie, come check out Tainted Presents: Joystick, a Video Game themed drag show & queer dance / costume party.
We have some of Vancouver's top talent performing as fan-favourite characters from different video game franchises, they're going to 1-UP every other show you've seen!
At a Tainted party, you know to expect an immersive experience. From decor, to performances, to looks, everything is on theme and on brand.
We want YOU to get into the spirit too. Don't let us have all the fun! We want to see you turn a LOOK. Throw on a moustache and become Mario or embrace your inner twink and pop on that Link wig. Who said you can't come as a Pokemon and evolve during the night? The sky is the limit and we can't wait to see what you do!
