11.30 PM : Michele Nox. Formerly known as MEKELE, Michele Nox's music is indefinable and intangible; a continuous experiment in pop that defies categorization and comprehension. Whispers of his childhood influences - Aaliyah, Peter Gabriel and Cocteau Twins - faintly echo through operatic vocal harmonies and hybrid arrangements of synthesizers, piano and organic materials.
Interview with CHASSEUR, a biannual publication inspired by global urban youth culture.

Queer West Film Festival in 2016 is about; glory, shame, distaste, trash and beauty. This year we are walking on the wild side, with 24 Premier films, never seen in Canada; on sexual fetishes, sadomasochism and lesbian violence, as well as more traditional films on gender identity and human rights; We enjoy creating a festival by looking at the queer perspective from all corners of the world, perspectives that challenge normative views, propose an alternate way of thinking, and approach life and storytelling from another way. We’re proud to be the Greater Toronto Area second largest LGBTQ film festival. Full event listings July 4th.
