It's a great week in Halifax to be queer and help out at the same time.
The AIDS Coalition of Nova Scotia is presenting the BMO Financial Bid for Life dinner and auction
in the Schooner Room at Casino Nova Scotia this Thursday.
Last year's host, Heidi Petracek.
Fundraisers like this are a big deal for the ACNS, since the money raised constitutes a large portion of their annual budget. All the funds raised at this event help people here in Nova Scotia
by providing programs and services for those living with HIV/AIDS as
well as those most at risk.
On Friday, the second annual Masqueerade will be taking place at the Atlantica Hotel.
The event is open to all university and college LGBTQ+ students and allies in the HRM for this dance party, featuring drag performances by Kristi Davidson and friends. This all-ages, wet/dry event is selling tickets by each LGBTQ+ society on HRM's various campuses DalOUT, NSCAD's Queer Collective, Kings Pride, SMU-Q, NSCC's Diversity Club and Mount Pride
Watch. Doors open at 9pm, with performances taking place from 9:30 until 10:30pm. Dancing and a photo booth afterward.
