No Need to Reign it In at the Pride Society’s Annual Unicorn Ball

By Kendell Yan

Winter blues got you feeling dull and washed out? Need a dose of fluttering flamboyance and shimmying shine to put that pep back in your step? Then on February 2nd, you’ve got to prance on down to the third annual Unicorn Ball, presented by the Vancouver Pride Society!

The Unicorn Ball is the Pride Society’s winter fundraiser and epic dance party hosted at the Imperial on 319 Main street. This mane event is open to all members of the LGBTQ2IA+ community and their allies, and the venue is wheelchair accessible except for the front dance floor which is accessible by stairs only.

Fool around in the magical photobooth to capture your most fantastical moments, snack on some sweet unicorn treats, and relax in the Love Bus ball pit and unicorn pillow lounge.

Special performances throughout the evening are by performing artists Dezi, and Vixen Von Flex. An all-women DJ line-up will have your hooves hoppin’, including DJ A$H, DJ O Show, DJ Angle, and DJ Krista.

Of course, no unicorn is ever happy without a costume contest, and the ball has three categories: most colourful, most creative, and horniest horn. Prizes for winners in each category provided by Mac Cosmetics and a wealth of other sponsors include a gift basket and gift cards.

Last, but never least is the raffle! One lucky attendee of the Unicorn Ball will win the grand prize and be whisked away with a friend to nearly any Air Canada destination in Canada, the USA, or the Caribbean. All proceeds going towards a Vancouver Pride Society bursary to help marginalized groups participate in Pride or to create their own events during the 2019 Pride season.

Tickets for the Unicorn Ball are available for $19.98 at JQ Clothing Ltd. at 2120 Commercial Drive, or Eventbrite at
