Stories From The Inside
You Gotta Have Friends
The one thing I love about the LGBTQ community is when one of us is in need there are many people who are there to help! Recently, Jade Elektra, had a bike accident and sustained injuries that will now require surgery. The word got out about this accident and the community responded. There was so many well wishes online, and I am sure in person.
Because Jade will need some expensive surgery, the community is coming together to help. On Thursday, November 6th, many of Toronto’s best drag artists, and other performers, will be performing at Zippers to help out a friend. Some of these thoughtful people include: Heaven Lee Hytes, Brooke Lynn Hytes, Chantelle Helena Carr, Georgie Girl, Amanda Roberts, Chris Edwards, Michelle Ross, Divinesque, Ryan Graham Hinds, Sofonda Cox, Devine Darlin, Carlotta Carlisle, Katinka Kature, Barbie Jo Bontemps, Sherry Sylvain and many more.
Come out and enjoy an amazing show and help out someone who has done a lot for our community. Jade Elektra has been involved with many charitable efforts including a regular PWA benefit at Crews & Tangos. Jade is a community spirit person who has aways been there when her community called and now let’s help return the favour.
I have worked with Jade many times in the past on several projects and have always been impressed how she always thinks about how to give back to her community. Check out a short documentary I produced, a few years ago, featuring Jade Elektra. Hope to you see all on Thursday!
