About this Event

Join us at OVARY-ACTING, a LIP SYNC battle for bodily autonomy and reproductive rights!

LIP SYNC MTL is back and this time we are donating 100% of the proceeds to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund. The Battle begins Saturday, August 3rd 2019 at Diving Bell Social Club, and you definitely do not want to miss it.

OVARY-ACTING is your night to become a superstar; channel your inner Queen Bey, your Rhi Rhi, your Lady Gaga!

If you’re not performing, it’s your chance to see these musical legends perform all in one place and battle it out for the title of Lip Sync MTL Champion, while donating to a great cause.

This year will be MC’d by Nicky Fournier and Martha Graham, a comedian/host dream team.

We will also have a celebrity judge panel made up of local performers and comedians.

How will it work?

There will be 3 rounds of 3 lip sync battle performers (9 competitors total) and after each round the 4 judges will deliberate and choose a winner. Between each new round, one of the judges will perform a short set. The three finalists will do one final (4th) round and the judges will choose 1st, 2nd, 3rd place and claim their PRIZES!

Who are our sponsors?

Our goal is to partner with local, sustainable, cruelty-free, female-founded businesses.

Our first official sponsor is V & O Salon https://vandosalon.com/en/ V&O Salon are generously donating prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place as well as 15% off coupons for every guest at the Lip Sync Battle!

Why the Planned Parenthood Action Fund?

“Politicians in multiple states are passing laws that ban abortion at a point before most people know they’re pregnant. These politicians want the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade let these bans go into effect — ending safe, legal abortion in their states once and for all. We won’t stand by while they take away our right to control our own bodies”. For more information: https://www.plannedparenthoodaction.org/issues/abortion

The Canadian equivalent, Action Canada for Sexual Rights and Health is a wonderful organization that works tirelessly at maintaining our rights in Canada. If you're interested in contributing to the cause for Canada specifically, we highly recommend donating to them at their website: https://www.actioncanadashr.org/

The reason why we decided to organize this event specifically for the Planned Parenthood Action Fund is to contribute to fighting the specific bans in the US before they can take affect in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota and Ohio. The recent news about these bans is what inspired us to create this event: https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2019/05/states-passed-abortion-bans-190514142646289.html

We know these bans are just the tip of the iceberg of our fight for sexual rights globally, but fundraising for the Planned Parenthood Action Fund will help us channel our rage into something positive. Right now, you can see a break down of the current laws in Quebec and Canada here: https://bit.ly/2Rg99oz. Helping Planned Parenthood fight these bans could also contribute to the assurance that Canada will not follow suit. The Planned Parenthood Action Fund helps Planned Parenthood fight for laws and policies to protect people’s rights and health. Additionally, for more than 45 years, the international arm, Planned Parenthood Global, has been working overseas to ensure that women, men, and young people in some of the world’s most neglected areas have access to the health care they need to control their bodies and their futures: https://www.plannedparenthood.org/about-us/planned-parenthood-global/who-we-are. Our contribution can truly make a difference for our sisters in the US and beyond!
