Photo gallery: faces of Pride’s South Asian Express
The South Asian stage was reinstated this year thanks to Black Lives Matter, and brOWN//OUT was a colourful, joyful success
At last year’s Pride, Black Lives Matter’s demands included the reinstatement of the South Asian stage. Pride listened, and this year we got brOWN//OUT on Saturday, June 24 at the South Asian Express stage on the corner of Wellesley and Church.
Curated by Anu Radha Verma, the cabaret-style event featured colourful dancers, burlesque, tabla, DJs Amita Handa and Nino Brown, plus host Rahim Thawer.
