The capacity audience enjoyed a breakfast brunch with complementary champagne mimosas before the talented artists of Troyboy Entertainment from Hamilton performed.

Wearing exquisite and exotic costumes, the performers with stage names like Cotton Candy and Sapphyre Poison, had the crowd cheering and clapping, as they danced and lip-synced to popular songs in the all-PRIDE themed show.

The performers demonstrated their physical performance artistry through their dance, and audience participation also added to the hilarity and fun-filled afternoon.

Several of the performers also shared their life experiences and what led them into becoming ‘drag’ performers.

While museums are about history, today’s events will in fact become the history of the future.

“Everyone appeared to thoroughly enjoy the event,” said Museum Executive Director, Cathy McGirr.  “It was to be a fun-filled demonstration of our acceptance of diversity when it comes to the LGBTQ2+ community, especially during PRIDE month and, according to the feedback from those who attended, it did all of that.”

Bruce County Museum and Cultural Centre continues to become a hub of exploring progressive cultural identities that include not only the LGBTQ2+ community but also the close-knit relationship with the Indigenous community that it has fostered.
