Spring into leather


This spring, just as the runways had preached, the most supple leathers in the season’s freshest hues are everywhere. In icy blues and washes of grey, freshen your printemps wardrobe and stay warm while looking fabulous in the transition season. Made into shorts, skirts, tank tops and cropped pants, leather, a material often used during gloomier times of year, has been reinvented and interpreted by many designers and retailers.

Comedians from the community

This year’s Winnipeg Comedy Festival is full of GLBTQ*

This year’s Winnipeg Comedy Festival line-up includes five comedians from the GLBTQ* community. Founding artistic director and comedian Al Rae said, “One of the pillars of the comedy festival has always been this idea that you really can bring people to understand people that might be different than themselves through comedy.”

Celebrate Pride at cocktails under the stars

OutWords fundraiser returns for its second year

In the half-dozen years it existed, Cocktails in the Trees became one of the most antici- pated events of Pride Week, and for good reason. Staged in a gorgeous home in the heart of Wolesley, the evening of music, scrumptious food and fabulous cocktails never failed to keep guests chatting about the amazing experience for weeks after. Conceived as a humble fundraiser for some of Winnipeg’s GLBTQ* organizations, Cocktails in the Trees had become a must-attend soirée.
