Mayoral candidate Olivia Chow's World Pride Party packed Toronto's premier gay bar Woody's this week-end.

The lineup was over an hour long for two sensational shows starring Mahogany Browne, Sapphire Titha-Reign, Allysin Chaynes, Slimthick Monroe, Mila Veu, Natalia Haute-Mez and Brendan Lewis.  Former Ontario Deputy Premier George Smitherman was the special guest and rallied Chow supporters.

One of the drag queens, Natalia, did Kylie Minogue's Locomotion with a cute transit costume that said: "Olivia Chow: A Real Transit Plan" only to be a greeted by a giant "John Tory Transit Flip-Flop."
