Temple of the Divine Queer

Rhubarb Festival

Imagine a world in the future where Queerness has become the dominant religion in the world; where Gay Icons have become stained glass windows and the altars are covered in glitter. Imagine a future faith that isn’t just making room for you, but where your joys are the very lisping Word of God.

Join us on the sacred dance floor of our Sangat Prima: The Patrician Tabernacle, Tallulah’s Cabaret, to raise up a joyful noise that infuses divinity into every drop of sweat. Let’s have a religious experience together.

Charismatic Leader: Adam Barrett. Graven Images: Trixie & Beever. Ecstatic Movement: Matthew Eger. Joyful Noise: Michael Robert-Broder. The Word: Kaleb Robertson. High Priestess: Aimée Carbonneau.

Starting at 8pm, there are shows happening in both spaces at Buddies (the Cabaret and the Chamber), so when you arrive at the theatre pick the show you want to see first, and 30 minutes later when it’s done you can either stay where you are or move to the other space for your next performance. There is a different set of shows each week – so keep coming back. There are also exhibitions in the building that you can only see before the shows start, so be sure to show up early.

And remember, shows at Rhubarb are not individually ticketed. So that show you want to see at 9:30? If you just show up at 9 you will probably be out of luck and all the tickets were sold to people who came for the whole evening.

Tickets: Wednesday-Saturday – $20. Your ticket grants you access to all of the performances on a given day. Call the box office at 416-975-8555 or
