Movie: Small Town Pride

Organizing in church basements, classrooms and around kitchen tables, they take on a conservative town council that won't fly a rainbow flag and bend some rules to create a safe space for youth to come out. But despite experiences of isolation and discrimination, they love their communities and strive to make them places where everyone, no matter who and how they love, can live and thrive.

Monét X Change with Symphony Nova Scotia
After Symphony Nova Scotia's hugely popular, ground-breaking, multi-performance collaboration with Thorgy Thor, Symphony Nova Scotia is thrilled to continue paving the way for greater 2SLGBTQIA+ representation and celebration in the orchestral world with New York drag queen, singer, and performer Monét X Change. Rising to fame after competing in the 10th season of RuPaul’s Drag Race and winning season four of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars, Monét – who is known for her quick wit, powerful vocals, comedic chops, high-energy performances, and (of course) her pussycat wigs – performs music by Mozart, Bellini, and Puccini, along with hits by Dolly Parton, Nina Simone, and more.
This performance may include strong language or content elements which might not be suitable for viewers under the age of 14. Parents are encouraged to exercise discretion.
Tickets: Purchase information available online. Single tickets available as of August 7.
Location: Rebecca Cohn Auditorium, 6101 University Avenue
