Babes On Babes // Queer Long Weekend Jam
Presented by Babes on Babes
First of all, we would like to send a huge shout out to everyone who came out last Babes to celebrate our two year anniversary! It takes an amazing community of humans and a lot of love to make these events happen and we are forever grateful for your endless support and positive vibes.
This Babes we celebrate the greatness that lives among us, VanCity’s queer talent runs deep and we are blessed to have some of our all time favourites in the building. From party rockin’ DJs, to the chill zone and the karaoke room there’s a little something for everyone. Can’t wait to see you there. XO BABES
