Peak Pride offers something for everyone under the rainbow banners at Big White in Kelowna from April 6-8, including a mountain parade, Aprés Ski beer gardens, and performances from performances of all kinds at the big pride bash, WipeOUT. Extend the weekend in either direction here in Vancouver before or after making your way up for one big gay ski weekend.
Here are some events to check out in Vancouver on the peripherals of Peak Pride:
Cirque Du So Gay at the Junction
Straight out of The Cirque, your ring master Nadya Business is bringing her assistant clowns Gia Metric and Berlin to close out your long weekend in style. Come one, come all and step into the world of Cirque Du So Gay for a fun filled night of talent featuring local and international performers! Fire, Aerial hoop, Pole, Wegg Sphere and some of Vancouver’s hottest queens! What could possibly go wrong?

Peach Cobblah’s Shame Spiral at 1181
Join the inimitable and sintillatingly sweaty hostess Peach Cobblah as she hosts a raucous and raunchy weekly drag show recounting shameful stories punctuated by impromptu drag numbers pulled at random by the audience.
Showtime at 11:00pm
Rupaul’s Drag Race Season 10 Viewing Party
Every Thursday night at 8pm, 1181 hosts Drag Race viewing parties. Tune in to all the wig-snatching, stiletto-snapping fun while the sexy 1181 pit crew serves (drinks) all night long!
You are going to need to bring all your charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent, as they’re turning-up this party and making it interactive with Misty H Meadows and weekly co-hosts bringing us all kinds of fun with performances and games each week!
Show at 8:oopm
Moist Mondays with Misty Meadows at XY
The critics and DM lurkers have commented, “ewww” “gross” “why her”. Guests rotate each week – it is going to be weird, wet and probably a little wild.
Show at 11:15PM
Bingo for Life at XY
Join weekly drag queen hostesses for a few rounds of bingo! All proceeds go towards the Vancouver Friends For Life Society, which provides vital services to people living with HIV and other illnesses.
Bingo starts at 7:30 pm sharp and will be over by 9:00 pm.
