THINGS ARE BETTER
Things change. There’s hope in that. The Loud and Queer Caboret is celebrating its 20th anniversary. Stories about it are everywhere. Tickets are in demand. It wasn’t a big deal for me until I understood that, 20 years ago, the event went unannounced to the public. It wasn’t safe to put on such an event in Edmonton, would not have been wise to alert the media. There was a need to protect the audience, lest anyone be discovered there by someone who might report to an employer, or a family.
