Event description

Description


THERE WILL BE SOME TICKETS AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR! COME AND DANCE :)


2019 is a big year in Queerville. It marks the 50th anniversary of the decriminalization of homosexuality in Canada, and 50 years since the Stonewall Inn uprising in Greenwich Village, NYC, sparking the modern LGBTQ rights movement in the US. To celebrate this, and our 7th year hosting Yukon Pride, we're thrilled to welcome back to the Yukon Queer As Funk!

Vancouver’s Queer as Funk is renowned for its tight rhythm section, hot horns, and soulful vocals, bringing together the city’s best musicians in a dynamic, high-energy dance band. There's nothing this tight-knit band loves more than performing together, and that love is palpable to audiences everywhere.

With repertoire ranging from beloved funk, soul and Motown classics of the 60s and 70s (Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson) to contemporary pop favourites (Amy Winehouse, Bruno Mars, Demi Levato), Queer as Funk is also the sharpest-dressed suit-and-tie band in town.

KDCC is a wheelchair-accessible venue.
All-gender washrooms.
Queer Yukon doesn't believe that cost should be a barrier to participation in the community. If you would like to participate in this event, but feel that financial considerations are a barrier, please contact us at queeryukon@yahoo.ca to make arrangements.

Queer Yukon gratefully acknowledges the support from Government of Yukon, TD Canada Trust, City of Whitehorse, Yukon Employees' Union, Save On Foods, What's Up Yukon, CKRW, Air North and Northern Vision Development for Yukon Pride 2019.
