Fantastic food accompanied our very first all-ages drag show
On Sunday, Pivot Theatre hosted an event new to community theatre in Surrey - a fun-filled afternoon highlighting the incredible talents of eight up and coming drag performers. Hosted by Aria Treble, the event started with delicious Greek food served by the amazing Faye. Then the fun really began, as each performer danced, shimmied, and lip synced their way through two different numbers - complete with costume changes!

One of our performers, Abeiya Miraj, even made it onto the front page of the Surrey Now-Leader. The cover prompted reactions from a few readers, so the paper put the cover on their Facebook page to ask readers their thoughts. We're happy to report that the post has received hundreds of responses, which have been overwhelmingly supportive.
Part of the funds raised during this event are going to Rainbow Refugee, a Vancouver-based organization that assists LGBTQI+ refugees who are fleeing persecution based on their sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or HIV status. You can read about them and their work here.
