Splendor in Space: A Drag Odyssey will take place in the Planetarium Thursday, April 25th.

“A large part of our programming is for people who have a natural curiosity about the universe” says Michael Unger, Programs Coordinator at the HR MacMillan Space Centre.

“There are many ways to teach people about space, so we often partner with local arts and cultural organizations to help build new programs and bring in new perspectives. The local Vancouver drag community was excited to work with us to create programming unlike anything that has ever been done in the Space Centre’s 50 year history. We hope you’ll be inspired and learn more about the universe through music, comedy, and pop culture.”
