Genderfukt Moves to Hacienda Lounge

Back in March I promised to keep you posted about the return of Genderfukt... and as the king above will note, yes, it's that time again.

Genderfukt, the local drag & burlesque extravaganza -- ranked 6th best drag event in the world by planetout.com -- returns this Friday, April 7th at Hacienda Lounge (794 Bathurst - NW corner of Bathurst & Bloor).

A brand new location for the event which quickly outgrew its previous home. The new club is bigger, has comfy seating, better sightlines, projection screens (for high-tech drag fun), pool tables and *gasp* coat check (which thanks to this chilly weather is going to be useful).

In terms of talent, host Deb "Dirk" Pearce returns to mock the crowd as does DJ Catscratch to keep you dancing right through until the morning hours.

The performers range from staple acts to Genderfukt virgins:

Brian Bedside Mannor, Justin, Kat.ass.trophy, Milo de Milo, Sabastien Cognito, Skylar Rocket, Brucy Barnett, Cameron, Codi & Elton Schlong, Jaycub, Johnny Class, Junoon Walla, Mitch, Robin, Sabrina, sbaastien siobhan, Straightjacket Tyler, Strutz, Titty-Titty Bang-Bang & Janet, and the Wet Spots!

Doors open at 9pm, show 10:30pm.
Tickets are $7 in advance and $9 at the door.

As of today, tickets are on sale at Hacienda Lounge as well as Come as You Are (701 Queen St W) but as you might expect, they're going fast. I wouldn't recommend waiting to get one at the door!

PWYC tix are also available. Contact: skylar.rocket |at| gmail.com
