Stay Gold Man Up | What began 9 years ago as a drag king competition night at one of the last lesbian bars in Vancouver—the now closed Lick nightclub—has since turned into a monthly multi-gender drag spectacular and queer dance party in East Vancouver. Celebrating kings, queens, and everything in between, Man Up has grown to become indispensable in Vancouver’s vibrant and diverse queer community, proving that drag is for everybody. Stay Gold Man Up features interviews with key figures, attendees, and performers alike. Man Up happens the last Friday of every month at the Cobalt.
