Event description
Gurls Nite Out! Its back, it’s Halloween, say no more!!

About this event

Started in 2012, GNO is a Social night out for the Trans/CD community to let loose and have a little fun. We welcome everybody to our event, transgender individuals, CDs, non-binary folk, allies, and supporters in an LGBTQ2+ supportive environment.

it’s Halloween, do we really need to say any more. Time to start planning your costume!!! We’ll have prizes for the sexiest and the scariest costumes. Also, the best overall costume of the night, chosen by the restaurant staff, so tip your server well!

You must sign up for a ticket on Eventbtite to attend the event. Capacity is limited to 85, due to Covid restrictions, so sign up early to avoid disappointment. The event is free, but donations are gladly accepted, and will go towards supporting this night with prizes and treats! Note - a donation through Eventbrite also signs you up for a ticket, there is no need to also get a free ticket if you have donated.

Everyone loved the new venue for our event in September, so we’re heading back to the same spot

The restaurant is the Chop Steakhouse and Bar, attached to the Sandman Hotel in Oakville. The restaurant has agreed to reserve the bar area for our private party.

Booking a room at the Sandman is a great option, so you don’t have to worry about drinking and driving. The Girls Night Out group rate at the Sandman is now set up - $99. We suggest you check online first because when we checked, there were better deals available online!!

The group cut-off date is October 15th. Guests can now call 1-800-SANDMAN and quote group #165016.

We will also set up a room sharing group on the event’s Facebook page so people interested in sharing a room can find a roommate.

As the party won’t start until 10:00pm, we encourage you to book a table at the restaurant for dinner prior to the event. New to GNO? We are hoping some of our event “veterans” will volunteer to host tables of up to six so you can meet fellow newbies in a more intimate setting. Look for more details on that on social media.

Not able to make it to dinner, no fear, there will be snacking options available at the bar during the event - see Happy Hour menu:

Signing up for Eventbrite is free and you can sign up using your preferred name. For example, if you normally present as male, but will present as female at the event, you can sign up using your female name.

There are two ticket types for the event. One is free, just select that option, the number of tickets for your party, answer the question about the hotel, and checkout.

The other option gets you a ticket as well, but also allows you to provide a donation. You can use either a credit card or Paypal for the donation. Just enter the donation amount in the box, answer the question about the hotel, and checkout. The donation option only shows as one attendee, so if there are more people in your party, please “buy” the appropriate number of free tickets as well.

Jamie of TGCD Style Toronto is the event’s official makeup artist. Jamie is a professional makeup artist and stylist offering realistic (non-drag) male-to-female transformations from head to toe, makeup lessons, storage of your femme wardrobe, and consulting on femme poise and movement. She also carries a selection of wigs and cosmetics. Jamie can also order what you need for you and have it shipped to her home for an easy, discreet pickup.

Please contact her direct to book a makeover prior to the event. You won’t regret it, she is amazing. Her website is:
