Quebec City Pride
Wedding under the Rainbow
It was on August 31 that Yves and Sylvain were publicly united by marriage. By this highly symbolic gesture, the newlyweds not only wanted to highlight their many guests but also by celebrating the fifteenth anniversary of Canadian law permitting same-sex unions. They are proving to the world that love transcends the borders of heteronormativity.
Inflatable games, face painting, shows of princes and princesses animated by drag queens, animals and story time, are the activities that families could enjoy during Family Day. This type of event was in high demand from festival-goers during the previous edition’s poll. The beautiful weather and the numbers specially designed for toddlers charmed parents who consider that this day should be added to the classics of the Fête Arc-en-ciel.
This Shöw’s funny
Dr. Mobilo presented us with a comedy show with an LGBTQ + flavor. In fact, the emerging comedians presented the opening night with acts that were as creative as they were daring. The comedians, Alex Forest, Tranna Wintour, Audrey-Anne Dugas, Samuel Cyr, Guillaume Wagner with the animation of Coco Belliveau, made this first edition of the show a success.
Redrawing the genders
Hosted by DJ KOKA, a duo composed of Karim Ouellet and King Abid, participants were invited to redraw genders, a committed artistic event during which live models composed of non-binary people will serve as inspiration. The concept of this activity is to get cartoonists to think about their way of representing the notion of gender.
