A note about the Two Spirit Drag Performance:
Two Spirit Drag Performers extraordinaire, Feather Talia and Local Honey, will be performing live in an interactive new media installation in collaboration with transdisciplinary artist Helga Jakobson. The trio have been working to develop a responsive projected environment for the WAG that you will be invited to interact with after their performance.

Tipping is welcome, and there will be a tip jar on the stage. Please do not touch performers, and do not come onto the stage until after performances have ended.

Red Tent is an organization that provides education and creates awareness about anti-oppression, safer spaces, and consent culture and will be present for the duration of the event.
