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).
