Help me make my biggest painting ever!
42 feet wide and 12 feet high with 50 life-sized figures in it!!

An epic,detail-drenched 42-ft long drawing, done by hand with a #8 self-priming paint brush, celebrating the past 50 years of bars, clubs, drag and performance on Church Street.

This year from May until July, I’ll be painting a big, 42-ft wide mural on Church Street as part of the Village’s preparations for World Pride 2014.

My painting will appear as if the wall were invisible and the viewer is looking in on the backstage performers’ area of Goodhandy’s (now Club 120), Woody’s, Crews/Tango, Buddies, Zipperz (RIP Playground/Manatee)

I want to fill the backstage area with a tumultuous array of 50 late-night,Village monster party legends. I want the kinds of artist and performance Dervishes and street Transvestite Action Street Revolutionaries of the past 50 years of Church Street history. So far I’ve picked is Todd Klink and Mandy Goodhandy of Club 120, formerlyGoodhandy’s. I’m going to do Mandy in drag as Alexander Wood (the BMO top hat Nelly). Also I’m putting Miss Tulsi in a pink flower bodice in 5 a.m. mode. She gets in cuz for being the first out TS to win Miss Continental. And I’m putting in Mira Soleil Ross, who I understand and remember as a Montrealer, but she is on an approved list of local TBLG heroes so I’m delighted to have her. I’m making her in 2003-era animal rights feminist mode. I guess if she is in, I can paint a west Torontonian like Will Munro. I was unfortunate to settle in Toronto 2 months before we lost him, but his ghost lingers everywhere; I’ll make sure he’s having a great time at my UltraChurchClub

The setting is going to be a 42-ft wide image of a messy, chaotic, dressing room/DJ booth/Bar kitchen and maybe a bathroom where I can put the Hot Mess Xxxpress Cult.

Help me make my biggest painting with 66 figures in it!!
I need 46 more characters to host my weird club that is simultaneously every club with a backstage area within a 3-mile radius of Zipperz in the past 50 years.

Drop me names, turn me on to the good stuff, tell me what the best ones were up to.

Tell me who made the parties and the scenes and fun cliques for queers to congregate and advance alt-sexuality acceptance, made communities of outsiders, emboldened those whose beauty had not been allowed to shine for too long, who created contagious fabulousness out almost nothing, who were so unabashedly themselves that they made everyone proud to be around them.

Help me show everything that’s great about our Toronto queer nightlife.

WORLD PRIDE with over a million tourists is coming in just 15 months!
