    Co-Sponsored by Democrats Abroad Canada and
    Democrats Abroad Toronto LGBTQ+ Caucus

    Bring the kids for this family-friendly event with Fay Slift and Fluffy Soufflé. This Toronto-based drag duo challenges gender stereotypes and cultivates a safe and fun space for kids and families of all identities and expressions.

    Drag stars Fay Slift + Fluffy Soufflé have been doing drag storytimes since June 2016. Based in Toronto, they have been fortunate to do so many local events at some of Toronto’s biggest cultural institutions, as well as hit the road to adventures beyond the city. Their special events focus on books, songs and include lots of laughs to show that Reading is FUN-damental! They especially want to support families with LGBTQ2S parent(s) and gender variant children, and read culturally diverse books, by providing a supportive and inclusive environment focused on fun. Everyone is welcome!

    This event will be part of the overall Democrats Abroad Global LGBTQ+ Caucus Virtual Pride 12-hour Marathon. Click here to learn more about various activities, celebrations, stories, and films being streamed across the globe for this exciting day-long event.

    Youth Spoken Word Performance with CANVAS Arts Action Programs

    CANVAS

    Co-Sponsored by Democrats Abroad Canada and
    Democrats Abroad Toronto LGBTQ+ Caucus

    In the past year, the world has seen how spoken word and poetry can be a powerful tool for advocacy, a way of communicating and expressing pain and joy, and an outlet for healing. 

    On January 20, 2021, the world listened as Amanda Gorman’s presented her moving inaugural poem, which moved us to reflect on our world and democracy from the eyes of a young activist. 

    Democrats Abroad Toronto is excited to partner with CANVAS Arts Action Programs (CANVAS), a Toronto-based non-profit that works to prevent gender-based and sexual violence, homophobia and transphobia for a special spoken word performance. CANVAS uses interactive, arts programs to educate on gender equity, consent, and LGBTQ2S+ inclusion in schools, summer camps, communities and workplaces. 

    Join us for this special performance, open to members and their families of all ages!

    This event will be part of the overall Democrats Abroad Global LGBTQ+ Caucus Virtual Pride 12-hour Marathon. Click here to learn more about various activities, celebrations, stories, and films being streamed across the globe for this exciting day-long event.
