To help celebrate another weird Pride year, we worked with photographer Joe Bulawan to showcase some of the queer folks who have always worked their butts off throwing events, balls, shows and parties, as well as those who raised the bar for queer virtual events and kept us entertained from home for the past year.
This is by no means a definitive list, but it is a collective group of ridiculously talented, brave, energetic, loving LGBTQ+ people who do what they do for the love of the culture.
This campaign is not sponsored. No one paid us to do this, and ALL the artists (including Joe, Neil who did grooming and James who did the editing!) did this for free. We sent an email and EVERYONE responded with a YES, without hesitation. Showed up with a LOOK, posed, twirled, air-kissed everyone and left.
These folks are the people who will ensure we are going to be JUST FINE when we can dance, and love and dance again. They represent some of the best of the best and most fierce in Toronto’s queer community and parties, events, market, balls, DJ set, burlesque, talks and drag will all be part of our lives again soon.
We bow down to everyone involved in this photoshoot. We listed and linked everyone below, so give them a follow and shoutout. And a special shout out to DJ Sofia Fly for letting us use her song.
