From songwriter circles to full band sets and drag performances featuring songs from Hugh’s Room esteemed alum, the series is a fresh, exciting addition to the fall concert calendar.

“I am so excited to bring some queer/trans heat to the month of November in Toronto,” says Thomason. “This series centering queer and trans excellence is open to all. Come as you are, as who you are becoming, as who you’d like to be for one night only… and then come back next Tuesday! We can’t wait to C U there.”
