We didn’t know if it was going to happen. The whispers were heard across central Winnipeg, from Sherbrook Street to Selkirk Avenue. “Will the Queens return? Will they deign to descend and deliver to us delicious bannock tacos?”
The Queens heard the call of the people and so they agreed: Friday, April 20 would be the appointed day that the Drag Queens of Like That would bring the people tacos, all to raise funds for the upcoming Second Annual Two-Spirit Pow Wow on June 2.
Thank you to all our friends and supporters who ordered tacos to be delivered homes and businesses, churches and barbershops, rec centres and workshops and the Legislative Building, too!
Thank you to all the volunteers who hustled to get 500 pieces of bannock out on the roads and into people’s mouths!
If you missed out on the sale but still want to support the Two-Spirit Pow Wow, you can donate to the event any time at this link: http://bit.ly/2nd2SPowWow.
Sunshine House’s own Prairie Sky gets her “Oscar moment” on the latest episode of the CBC series Canada’s a Drag, a weekly drag series that’s celebrating drag culture from coast to coast to coast. You can watch the 5-minute piece at the CBC Arts website or right here, below!
Thanks to our amazing supporters, Like That has reached almost 75% of its funding goal! We need to fund our program at least through June, so our participants can build and enter a float in the 2015 Pride parade! Help us get there by contributing to our fundraiser, and sharing it with your friends! Click below to visit our FundRazr page, and watch a fantastic video about Like That!
