Can you imagine getting lost in the world of Leigh Bowery, but with more wigs, more colors, more drag, and more fun? Well, that’s exactly what Wiggle by Never Apart and House of Venus was on Saturday night.
The Never Apart venue was buzzing with who’s who of fashion, art, and LGBT.
Thanks to Dax Dasilva, Michael Venus, all the performers and the amazing audience, the wearable art show was a complete success!
My head spun in circles as I kept up with the models and their incredible masks, wigs, hats, and outfits on the upstairs runway. The performances downstairs were all the more entertaining! Every one of them had enough sass to command that stage and some weren’t afraid to take that sass into the wonderfully fashionable crowd!
A favorite of mine was by House of Laureen. Three beautiful divas dancing, acting and experimenting with makeup. One of these ladies had a crown of Barbie legs: Uma Gahd way to be on top of that trend!

And then a little later I saw HER…
Candis Cayne, in a gorgeous red lace gown and red tulle negligee lip-synching La vie en rose. I was mesmerized as she came onto the stage, high kicked, twirled and flipped that beautiful blond hair. She is a charismatic comedian, an elegant dancer, and a drop dead gorgeous diva. I look forward to seeing her again, and again!
Come back to Montreal soon my dear!
For a little down time and socializing you could walk around the many exhibitions like the masks of Dayna Danger, the illustrations of Kent Monkman, and the photographs of Preston Buffalo. Or just lay back and watch the projection of the moon in a little private room. I must say the spheres of colorful lights and the empty pool was the perfect mingle zone to catch up with friends and meet new ones.
If you couldn’t or didn’t make it to the wonderful festivities of Saturday night, be sure to check out The Wiggle Exhibition at Never Apart on display throughout the spring season!
