QUEENS CARE

Saturday Mar 9th

On Saturday, March 9, QUEENS CARE returns for its 11th Anniversary.

 

Expect an evening of glamour, impersonation and comedy celebrating Vancouver’s premiere drag entertainers. For over a decade, Vancouver’s drag queens have donated their time and talents for Queens Care, a show created by MC, Joan-E, to raise funds for community-building organizations that support the LGBTQ+ community in the Lower Mainland.

 

Thanks to their generosity, over $25,000 has been donated to organizations including A Loving Spoonful, Out in Schools, The Vancouver Friends for Life Society, and the SPCA. The event is held in memory of Diana Rose, a treasured Vancouver entertainer who lost her life to cancer, and DJ Jules – who for years provided music for this event, who passed after a courageous battle with liver disease.

 

All monies collected will this year will once again be donated through the charity fund of the Dogwood Monarchist Society – an entirely volunteer run organization of drag performers and their friends, which this year is supporting the B.C. Cancer Foundation, Rainbow Refugee and Health Initiative for Men (HIM).
