Event Notes


The Laundry Basket

The Laundry Basket is a place where gender-variant people can swap, drop, and “shop” for gender-affirming clothing. We know the difficulties folks experience shopping safely for clothing and the cost associated with replacing a wardrobe (especially in this time of financial crisis). The Laundry Basket aims to rectify these issues by creating a safe space for gender-variant people to explore their style, share tips on everything from building outfits to doing hair and make-up, and by doing so grow the community that can oftentimes feel non-existent, especially for newly out people.

To close the event there will be a variety show hosted by Brendan D'Souza featuring comedy by Ajahnis Charley, drag by Manny Dingo, and music by Cheez Boys and Chinese Medicine. The swap is free, these PWYC tickets are for the variety show. PWYC entry for the variety show will also be available at the door.

Our staff have been monitoring provincial and city regulations, and have used this information to create a COVID-19 Safety Package for visitors, artists, and staff while at Buddies. Additionally, all guests will be required to wear a mask to attend Buddies events.
