June 23: Performances
Singing OUT: Toronto’s LGBTQ+ community choir with a mission of PRIDE. MUSIC. BELONGING. Singing OUT creates a warm and fun space for everyone who enjoys singing and learning. Welcoming everyone with different experience levels, backgrounds, and identities, this choir sings together, and they sing OUT.
Jada Hudson: Toronto Pride Event Host and glamazon scene queen Jada Hudson is a musical and visual mix of camp, chic, high fashion, and urban funk.
The RUDE Collective: RUDE (Real Unapologetic Diverse Expression) is a collective of individuals whose main objective is to create positive spaces for queer folks, especially queer people of colour.
Jezebel: Toronto’s only fully French queen, Jezebel has quickly won over the hearts of queens and kids alike with her dramatic and acrobatic performances.
Fay Slift: Full of over-the-top, feel-good vibes, Fay Slift and her troupe of merry dancers put on a spectacle that will make you feel all the love – and show you what Pride is all about.
DJ Craig Dominic: Voted runner up for best DJ in Xtra 2010 in the last instance of Xtra’s Best, DJ Craig Dominic’s signature jack of-all-trades style gives a new perspective to the DJ scene, blending top 40, R&B, hip-hop, house, and more into one cohesive experience.
DJ Cozmic Cat: Coz has brought her DJ mix to Iceland, USA, South Africa, and more, however she is best known in Toronto as the resident DJ and co-founder of Cherry Bomb, the city’s longest running queer women’s monthly party.
Music Bear Tony Banks: This hip hop storyteller has made a name for himself with his smooth rhythms, sick beats, and serious vocals. He stands out from the crowd as outspoken, unapologetic, and uniquely talented. 2017 brings new music with a pointedly updated attitude, and some off-the-hook collaborations with fellow hip hop artists Jwlb and EarthTone.
EarthTone: EarthTone is a seasoned hip-hop artist and producer. What separates EarthTone’s muziq is its openly gay yet subtle content in an ironic landscape: The Hip Hop Arena. He has a way of bringing you close to the thoughts of a “gay hip hop head”, without making you feel uncomfortable.
DJ Bone Intell: A gay rapper who bucks every conceivable gay rapper stereotype! DJ Bone Intell has all the gifts required to break through the glass ceiling of hip hop homophobia. His movement and street cred are real, and his swag can’t be denied.
Christian Jeffries and Backburner: Together with a talented group of musicians known as Backburner, Christian Jeffries is bringing his music to the masses like never before. Talent is genderless, and music, ageless. Christian Jeffries and Backburner is a force to be reckoned with and an experience you’ll never forget.
