We’ve found ourselves at the end of another rollercoaster week, and nothing warms the spirits (or your hands) like a jam packed weekend of events, shows, and laid back hangs with your nearest and dearest.

Directed by Phillip Pike, Our Dance of Revolution is one of my top picks at this year’s Inside Out Film festival.
Film Review: Changing the Game: a documentary about transgender teens in sports at Inside Out LBTQ Film Festival—10.27.19
This documentary is a must-see for any parent or family member raising a trans kid or adolescent, and everyone else because the social and political sickness that oppresses these youth (as well as all 2SLGBTQ+ youth and adults) is one that we all must labour to heal.
I suggest the film is more about Singaram than the two women. It is his struggle we see the most of.
Ocho and Javi’s brief, intense yet tender encounter demands deeper involvement with what they mean to and for one another.
If you haven’t checked out the fall colours in Gatineau Park yet, the long weekend is looking like the perfect time to go!

The month of May has just blown by, and this weekend is going to be just as packed as every other weekend since the sun reappeared!

Get out there to enjoy them, and check out different corners of the city for some cool happenings.
Multitude, Solitude: The Photographs of Dave Heath is a retrospective of a troubled street photographer considered by many to be one of the greatest of his generation.
Whether you’re celebrating Pi Day or St Patrick’s Day, this is a great weekend to round up some friends and have a good time.
With the end of the year fast approaching, the holiday cheer can make winter’s cold temperatures a little less frigid. The holidays are a time to get together and this weekend provides plenty of opportunity to indulge and get some of your gift-getting out of the way.
Feeling festive? With snow on the ground and more to come, it’s safe to say winter is here. Grab your coat and your friends, and check out some of the tree-themed events to kick off the holiday season in Ottawa.
Rafiki, meaning “friend” in Swahili, is a lesbian coming of age narrative by Kenyan director Wanuri Kahiu. In English and Swahili, this film is a must-see at the Inside Out Film Festival. It plays on Saturday, November 10 at 7:15pm at the National Gallery of Canada.
Another fall weekend ahead, and so much to do! Don’t forget that it’s your last chance to take advantage of the National Capital Commission’s free shuttle into Gatineau Park to enjoy the fall colours.
