The QSO return to the Burdock December 19 for our third annual holiday fundraiser, a night of festive classics and personal stories of queer experience drawn from the season. Featuring a number of special guests and members of the community, this is an evening that doesn't shy away from the complexities of the holidays. Laugh, cry and sing along with the QSO as we see another year draw to a close.
Proceeds will be donated to Rainbow Railroad to support their efforts assisting LGBTQ+ refugees flee countries where they face persecution.
Advance tickets available here
December 19, 8pm. 1184 Bloor St. W
The QSO were featured in a segment on the CBC Radio 1 program 'q' this summer, along with collaborators Audrey Dwyer, Gwen Benaway and Logan MacDonald. This piece illustrates our efforts to collect personal stories of queer experience, as related to particularly resonant pop songs, from members of the LGBTQ2S community.
