Drag Taco Sale 2018 = SUCCESS


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:
