The image on our poster and tarot card (9 of Bones, from The Collective Tarot http://thecollectivetarot.blogspot.ca/) is about abundance. It is about the fruits we share and enjoy with one another, that have grown from intentional work rooted in love. This fundraiser is about planting seeds, investing in the growth, sustainability and abundance of Unapologetic Burlesque. It is about celebration: the fruits, roots and spines of Unapologetic Burlesque which exist in the abundance of our energies, stories, and people.
Join us for an incredible evening of stories and performances that will showcase…
the fruits we collect, store and share
how deep our roots travel underground and hold us planted
how far our spins extend outward
the way we find anchors in ourselves and each other
& of course the way we sparkle and glitter!
As mentioned, this is a fundraiser for Unapologetic Burlesque! All proceeds will go toward the show, and to create accessibility and sustainability funds so we can continue to grow!
much love and more info coming soon!

- C-279 National Day of Action
On March 20, 2013 Bill C-279, an Act to amend the Canadian Human Rights Act and Hate Crimes provision of the Criminal Code to include ‘gender identity’ was adopted my Parliament and sent to Senate for approval. Senate was set to pass the bill at 3rd Reading in June, however due to procedural delays is still stalled.
On March 20, one year later, we aim to promote, encourage and support the eventual passage and Royal Assent of this important Human Rights Legislation.
Please join us in coordinated autonomous actions across Canada to push C-279 forward.
