LADY BUNNY IS A PIG IN A WIG FOR WHISTLER PRIDE
Whistler Pride has announced that the one-and-only legendary queen Lady Bunny will perform at the festival for the first time. Lady Bunny is an iconic trailblazer in the queer community, advocating for queer rights while mixing activism and entertainment! She brings attention to important causes and celebrates life and love in style. She is a drag queen, actress, nightclub DJ, promoter, and the founder of Wigstock. Lady Bunny will be front and centre as a guest of honour at this year’s festival including performing a night of potty-mouthed humour, that you won’t soon forget! Talented, glamorous and funny as hell – nobody does it like Bunny!
Parade Grand Marshal and T-Dance DJ
Friday ski-out and parade is always a spectacle. This year, Lady Bunny will bring extra camp and colour, greet the flags at the base at skier’s plaza to lead the march through the village and bring the crowds to the pride T-Dance at the Whistler Conference Centre. Later on, at the T-dance she will spin one of her infamously entertaining DJ sets! Don’t be surprised if she jumps out of the DJ booth to join the crowd on the dance-floor! The parade is free to join and the T-Dance is free to enter between 4:30pm and 5:30pm. Entry after 5:30 requires a pass or ticket or guests can pay at the door!
LADY BUNNY in PIG IN A WIG
Don’t miss the legendary warthog of Wigstock, LADY BUNNY in PIG IN A WIG. America’s favourite sow in a smock promises a night of corn-fed comedy, filthy music and plenty of wallowing in the mud. The show will feature Broadway parodies, Bunny’s salute to Laugh-In, some brand new material and some so old that only the dead will recall it.
With her glitzy outfits, sky-high wigs and false eyelashes long enough to embarrass Tammy Faye Baker, multi-talented drag artist LADY BUNNY would turn heads even if looking glamorous was her only talent. Bunny has been lucky enough to share a stage with many of her idols-including Patti Labelle, Joan Rivers, Bea Arthur, Elvira, Chaka Khan, Jennifer Hudson, Grace Jones, Jennifer Holliday… and now she’s coming to Whistler to share a night with you.
Tickets available in advance. Limited number available!
