This is a story of friendship, love, loss, and drag told with humour and compassion. In 1977, the author, then a naïve young man, escapes his pulp and paper mill town in northern New Brunswick and goes in search of his gay self. After two years studying in Toronto, he moves to Edmonton, begins his career as a prison guard and timidly comes out into the gay scene. A lasting and sometimes tumultuous friendship develops with Joe, a drag queen, and in the summer of 1982 they move to Vancouver in anticipation of fun times and promising futures. Pre-Order HERE

Making Spirits Bright has moved online for 2020! It’s an understatement to say that 2020 has been a year of significant loss in ways we didn’t know possible, and also a year of reckoning for reasons that are long overdue. We also understand the role that we, the Vancouver Men’s Chorus, play in many of our fan’s lives in kicking off your holiday season. As a queer arts organization, we thrive on spreading joy to our audiences, both at home and around the world. That is why ensuring Making Spirits Bright 2020 could go ahead has been a top priority for us as an organization, to make sure that our members and, most importantly, our fabulous and dedicated audience can still experience the joy of the season at the end of a year when it is needed most. Tickets $20 will be on sale October 25th. ONLINE
