Today in Toronto: Fringe Fest, Born Ruffians, Geoffrey Farmer, Queer as Fck, TIFF in the Park, Holodeck Follies
Today in Toronto it's World UFO Day, but good luck finding a celebration in this rational drone of a town (anyone want to roadtrip to Niagara Falls for Flying Saucer hangs?) At least we have the weirdness of the Fringe Fest, which launches today and runs in venues across the city until July 13 - check out our preview here.
Pride is never over in Toronto, and post parade you can get sexy literary style at the Gladstone, or dance it out at Queer as Fuck. TURF (Toronto Urban Roots Fest) is beginning its club series with Born Ruffians at the Horseshoe, and this week's TIFF in the Park screening is 20 Feet from Stardom, a tribute to back-up singers. Need a cheap laugh? Free Flicks: Funny Girls will showcase some seriously funny women at the Harbourfront. For more events, click on over to our events section.
