We’re back for the year’s must-attend event, the Out On Screen Fall Gala! This year’s fabulous Studio 54 themed art auction and cocktail party fundraiser is in support of Out In Schools and Vancouver Queer Film Festival.
Party with the who’s who of Vancouver’s LGBT2Q+ communities, take home one of 20 stunning pieces created by local and Canadian artists, and be a part of increasing queer, trans, and two-spirit representation in film and society.
The evening features both live and silent art auctions curated by Barry Dumka at BCreative Consulting, stunning drag, burlesque and dance performances, and moving stories about the impact Out In Schools is having in communities across BC! See our full auction catalog here.
Proceeds from the evening will support Out In Schools facilitators as they travel across BC creating inclusive schools, and provide a platform for queer artists at the 2020 Vancouver Queer Film Festival.
