BABES TURNS 3 NEXT MONTH!
3 years! Wow! What an incredible journey to share with all of you! Words cannot express how thankful and humbled we are for your continued love and support.
As a community we have created something beautiful. Babes is a place to nurture new talent and to inspire new connections. We are proud to witness and be a part of showcasing local and international Queer artists on their journey. Vancouver’s Queer scene continues to expand in every direction and that calls for a celebration.
This year we have a lot of exciting shows lined up for ya, including Queer comedy, live MC’s, dance crews and of course, more bands!!!
To kick off our 3rd year, super babe and performance artist AUTOKRAT is set to take the Babes stage!
My musical process has been the medicine I’ve needed to find light through darkness and has guided me to a place where I feeling connected and ready to share this journey with y’all.
With a backpack full of new tracks and an open heart I can’t wait to take the Babes on babes stage and rock with you.
I will also be starting to release tracks this fall.

THE BUDDY SYSTEM:
Please remember: CONSENT IS MANDATORY. Leave your oppressive & non inclusive behaviour at the door. The Buddy System will be in effect. Our buddies will be wearing bright neon shirts. They will have bottled water handy for you, run interference if someone is receiving unwanted attention and generally serve as go-to support should any problems or questions arise.
While we cannot encourage the use of recreational drugs, we understand that folks have a variety of ways they like to party. We will have someone trained to administer NARCAN (available at this event) in the event of an opiate overdose.
