Kelowna, BC - Rebellious Unicorns Production Company Inc. (RUPC) and Unicorns.LIVE are pleased to welcome Leila Neverland to the Friends of Dorothy stage on Wednesday, November 18, 2020 at 7:00 pm (PST) on the next episode of the series, QUSIC. The original series, which airs on the streaming service Unicorns.LIVE, showcases the work of LGBT2Q+ musical artists. A small audience will be in attendance and the live-stream will be available to home viewers at no charge on Unicorns.LIVE (watch.unicorns.live).
Raised by a Persian Zoroastrian villager, a family of Jewish immigrants, and a drag queen uncle, artist and mother Leila Neverland (she/her/hers) knows a few things about diversity, inclusivity, and unconditional love. She weaves an ambiance of true togetherness at every live performance and offers timely reflections of all that is life, death, and the decolonization of our collective consciousnesses. Neverland's emotive energetic authenticity inspires pure joy, empowered rage, and healthful tears as she leaves audiences breathless and full.
Her voice joins the ranks of those who inspire her like Nina Simone, Aretha Franklin, Bjork, Lady Gaga, and Amy Winehouse. She is well known in the Kelowna music community, and has been instrumental in bringing programs like Pianos in the Park and other artistic pursuits to the city.
This episode of QUSIC will be presented free of charge for the in-studio performance, with the live stream free to watch on Unicorns.LIVE (watch.unicorns.live).
