DAVIE VILLAGE POST Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada LGBTQ2+ Hub

Countdown: Event Of The Season, SHINE

With hundreds of volunteers and only a page to write, it’s impossible to put this event into complete perspective. There are just so many people that won’t be mentioned or highlighted simply because this extravaganza is Epic in Size.

You may have seen the countdown on Facebook, or watched Justin Voitic’s Tour De Force last week, when he paid a visit to numerous designers highlighting the fashion and designs set to hit the runway on September 10th.

As you read this, designers are putting the final touches to their pieces, stylists are contemplating the look for the night, makeup artists are getting their finest brushes and colours organized and the talent is gearing up. A show of this size and caliber takes a village and that is exactly what the LGBT community and hundreds of volunteers have taken to task.

It’s a show, an extravaganza the likes of which are seen perhaps once a year. Yet, it’s much more than that, it’s a party and celebration of what community can achieve. Dean Thullner is doing it yet again and it’s truly a monumental undertaking.
