She twinkles, she glistens, she sparkles…and she’s the Okanagan’s cocktail queen! Join the glimmering drag star Sparkle for A Sip with Sparkle, as she concocts a bevy of beverages live on the interwebs. Known for her energy, charisma, sassy wit, and fabulous blonde hair, Sparkle serves up a delicious combination of glamour, alcohol, and witty repartee. With locally sourced ingredients and step-by-step instruction on how to create these luscious libations, you’ll be sipping (and, perhaps, snort-laughing) your way through each episode. Sounds fabulous, nest-ce pas?

About the Artist
Biawanna (she/they/them) is a dynamic singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer who’s worked on multiple projects in different genres since they found their start at the age of seven. Their blend of indie-pop, RNB & dance-pop creates an energy that’s equal parts smart, sexy, and fierce. They channel a certain strength through their namesake, Biawanna, matriarch of the Solomon Islands, who gave birth to a long line of chiefs that they are a descendent of. Biawanna is currently getting ready to release their debut EP, ‘Care’, which should be expected soon. Biawanna identifies as queer/non-binary and is a proud WOC Indigeneous Fijian/Soloman. Follow Biawanna on Facebook and Instagram, find their music on Soundcloud, Spotify and Apple Music, and check out their YouTube channel.

Guess what? The original MX. is back on Thursday, July 23, 2020
! We’re keeping it social and keeping it safe, and we’re thrilled to invite you to join us at Dunnenzie’s in the Lower Mission
from 5:30-7:30 pm. Physical distancing measures will be in place -- we’re ‘MXing’ it up a bit this time with creative ways for everyone to get a chance to meet and make new connections.
The MX. was created as an opportunity for the LGBT2Q+ community to network, gather and socialize. This is also an opportunity to meet like minded people outside of the club and off the those lovely apps. Allies are encouraged to join.
In addition to meeting super fab people the MX. also fundraises for the Etcetera Youth Group
and 100% of the entrance fee will be donated to them. Space is available on a first come first serve basis. Please register in advance so that we can let Dunnenzie’s know how much food should be prepared for our guests.
Suggested donation for admission is $10 (or $5 for students (19+) with valid student ID).
If you’re planning on joining us, we hope you’ll reach out to some of your friends and work colleagues and consider carpooling. Parking at this location can be challenging, and keep in mind that they will be open to the public as well.
The MX. is presented by TD Bank, and proudly supported by Okanagan Young Professionals, Sarah Sucloy Real Estate, Friends of Dorothy and EzTix.
