If you aren’t coming out to Toronto’s Alternative Arts & Fashion Week on Thursday, April 22 to see Starkers Corsetry, you should check out this fundraising event. Silent Auction items, including some awesome jewellery from Soos Jewelry and a $200 gift certificate from Starkers Corsetry are up for grabs to help raise funds for A Dragged Out Affair – a Romeo and Juliet-inspired short film set in the world of Toronto’s Drag Queens which tells tells the forbidden love story of Heaven Lee Hytes, a classy seductress and her paramour Donnarama, a queen from the competing dive bar across the street. I really want to see this film made – so please support!
She Does The City is hosting this evening on behalf of three of our writers – Olga (Producer), Claire (Producer) and Sonia (Director) – who wrote this sassy short. And now they need YOUR help. While their project has received funding from Toronto’s Reel Asian Film Festival and the Ontario Arts Council – they still have a ways to go before they reach their needed budget.
What happens when you throw in the city’s most notorious Drag Queens, raunchy lyrics bound to make you giggle uncontrollably and dance moves so fierce they’ll make your head spin? A DRAGGED OUT AFFAIR, of course! A short film that tells the forbidden love story of two Drag Queens who make the fatal mistake of falling in love.
“Queens can fall in love with a woman, they can fall in love with a man, they can fall in love with your mother, but they cannot, ever, fall in love with each other.”
