🔴 PRIDE IN CHINATOWN 🔴
Curated by Paul Wong
August 1, 2019. 7PM – 11PM
50 East Pender St, Vancouver, BC.
A one night only magical twilight event in a spectacular setting in the heart of Vancouver’s historical Chinatown. This very special event will take over the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Park, the Classical Chinese Garden, and the public plaza. Pride in Chinatown celebrates queer Asian-Canadian art and artists that will tantalize all five senses.
Pride in Chinatown will be a momentous and historical festival for LGBTQ2 people, our allies, friends and family to be out loud and proud in Chinatown. It has been 50 years since the start of decriminalization of homosexuality in Canada and the Stonewall riots in New York City, which triggered the modern day Pride movement.
Presented by On Main Gallery, Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden, and Vancouver Art and Leisure as part of Alternative Pride Vancouver 2019. This will be an interdisciplinary art experience that will feature new experimental and traditional art forms which include electronic music, immersive theatre, media art installations, lion dancing, martial arts, drums, opera, culinary treats, drag and other non-binary encounters.
