The Edmonton Pride Festival is pleased to be hosting the Diversity Is Strength Party at Grey Cup Festival, presented by You Can Play.

Things get underway with the much anticipated Glitter Cup, a drag lip sync battle. Be sure to stick around after the battle, because Juno Award winning DJ Barry Harris will keep the party going and have you dancing until the bar shuts down!

Think you’ve got what it takes to participate in the Glitter Cup? All contestants will perform to Bonnie Tyler’s “Holding Out for a Hero” and will be judged on choreography, image, costume, personality and audience engagement. Apply here!

In addition to an incredibly talented entertainment line up, the evening will also feature several LGBTQ2S+ community organizations, sharing the work that they do to support diversity in Edmonton and surrounding area.

Join us for a fun and entertaining evening to bring together Edmonton’s LGBTQ2S+ community and our allies to celebrate and continue to bring attention to the work being done by organizations like You Can Play in ensuring equality, respect, and safety for all athletes.

9:00 PM – Doors open; mix and mingle with Drag Queens
10:00 PM – Glitter Cup Drag Lip Sync Battle hosted by emcee Josh Wolansky, AKA “Fitzgerald Bitchwilliams III”
11:00 PM – DJ Barry Harris (Juno Award winner from Toronto)
