Seahorse social: Cabaret & open mic

Thursday, February 25, 2010 - 23:00 to Friday, February 26, 2010 - 04:59

The Centre for Women and Trans People and LGBTOUT present . . .

"SEAHORSE SOCIAL": a unique collaborative pub night creating space for queer women, trans folk and allies. This event is trans inclusive.

Seahorse Social: Our habitats may be going extinct but tonight, this space is ours!
Seahorses are primarily threatened by fishing practices, particularly by non-selective trawling methods that rake the sea-bottom indiscriminately.

Let's swim together! Because there are less "boundaries" in water than in boxes?
We like to keep it fluid.
Metaphors . . . connections . . . reclaiming . . .

From Drag Kings to Dance Party. From a quiet pub space in the front to a raging dance and performance space in the back. Something for everyone! This party is one of the few spaces offering a queer student space carved out in downtown Toronto.
(Close to, but off the UofT campus).

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable. has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
