A Night of Pride and Wonder
Science World After Dark is a special event that invites adults (ages 19+) to take over the dome and explore the exhibits and galleries at their leisure. But this is not your typical night at the museum! Prepare to immerse yourself in an evening that promises unique STEAM experiences, one-of-a-kind performances, and a celebration of queer creativity, liberation, and activism.
The Spectacular Lineup
Hosted by none other than Vancouver’s non-binary drag superstar, Batty Banks, Science World After Dark: Celebrating Pride boasts an incredible lineup of performers and science communicators. From the mesmerizing Anya Anomaly to the fabulous Xanax, the talented Abb ’Original to the enchanting Genesis, the charismatic Ruth Odare to the sensational Bongganisa – these stars are set to light up the night with their awe-inspiring performances.
Batty Banks: The Versatile and Professional Drag Superstar
Batty Banks is more than just a drag queen; they are an animal rights advocate, urban ecologist, and educator with a Bachelor of Science degree. Blending the worlds of drag, wildlife studies, and activism, Batty creates unforgettable experiences that are fun, high-energy, and educational. Their debut performance at the 2023 Just for Laughs Vancouver Festival left audiences in awe, solidifying their status as one of Vancouver’s most versatile and show-stopping performers.
A Celebration of Diversity and Inclusivity
At Science World After Dark: Celebrating Pride, diversity and inclusivity take center stage. Together, we will uplift 2SLBGBTQIA+ communities, honoring their contributions to society while looking forward to a future that is free from hate and discrimination. This event shines a light on queer creativity and activism, creating a safe and welcoming space for everyone to be their authentic selves.
Food, Drinks, and Fun
As you explore the exhibits and revel in the performances, don’t forget to treat yourself to delicious food and drinks available for purchase. The tunes of a tuned-in DJ will keep the party going all night long, ensuring an unforgettable experience for everyone! Of course make sure to keep in mind that your drinks can’t enter into all the exhibits but there are lots of fun ones you can take drinks inside of and outside every exhibit is a “drinks in waiting” table; just place your drink and write your name next to it.
