Looking to explore your inner artist? Check out Vancouver’s Queer Arts Festival taking place July 23 to August 9. The transdisciplinary arts festival celebrates queer arts and artists through challenging art exhibitions, stimulating live performances and inspiring workshops. All events, workshops and performances are held in the Roundhouse Community Arts and Recreation Centre. www.queerartsfestival.com
Don’t just take your fitness outside – dine outside too. Whether it’s something as simple as eating your bagged lunch out on the grass, a backyard BBQ or a group picnic in the park, take the opportunity to enjoy the sunshine while you can. Before you know it, the leaves will begin to change to colour and the crisp air of fall will be lurking around the corner.
After the long, bitter winter we all just experienced you have no excuse not to get outside. Take your fitness out of the gym and into the parks and common areas that spent entirely too many months this year covered in snow. Look for groups like Team Edmonton, a volunteer-operated, non-profit society that primarily serves members of the LGBT communities. With 30 different sports and recreational activities to choose from, there is something for everyone – regardless of your fitness level. www.teamedmonton.ca
