Today's biggest event is undoubtably Drag Bingo, which sees local royalty Elle Noir and Kristi Davidson hosting an evening of hi-jinx as you dab your way to riches. Held at the Pride Festival's main site—the Garrison Grounds on Citadel Hill—advance tickets are required for this event, but can be purchased through the festival website. The fun starts at 9pm, tickets start at $15—and if cost is a barrier keeping you from attending, you're encouraged to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tall ships and tall heels are a match made in heaven—so a bevy of drag queens performing on the historic Silva feels like the perfect pride mix. The boat—located on the Halifax waterfront—tours the harbour at sunset as Zara Matrix and a crew of other drag royalty perform a nautical-tinged show. Advance tickets are required for the 8:30pm event. They are $50 and can be purchased via Zara Matrix's website.
The evening speakers series continues with a chat by
"Queerly and freely: exploring consent culture and 2SLGBTQ+ experiences" is a workshop held at 6pm at Radstorm (2177 Gottingen Street). It "will unpack ideas around what navigating consent means relation to each other, cis/straight partners, and the world around us," an event description states. The workshop is free and masks are required.
An online lecture at 6pm titled "Decolonizing Gender and Sexuality from a Jewish Perspective"—led by the region's first queer and non-binary rabbi—is held via Zoom. The talk is free but you must register in advance.
