This event has come and gone. Big thank you to all those who attended. Get on the list to be notified about all future Absolut Nights events.
Entry is subject to capacity – RSVP does not ensure entry. Please arrive early to avoid disappointment. Absolut believes that creativity can be a catalyst for change. Nightlife has always been an important creative platform; the dance floor should always represent a safe place for people to be who they are and express the fullest, most unabashedly honest version of themselves, whoever that may be. Across Canada and the world, a new nightlife movement is burgeoning - one focused on diversity, inclusivity, and freedom of expression for all. As part of a larger national program intended to amplify and celebrate the key communities in this movement, Absolut and its community partners have organized a panel discussion and will highlight many of the key voices using nightlife and creativity to instigate a more open world, and the causes they support by doing so. The discussion and panel will be led and moderated by NOW Magazine's Michelle da Silva, and will feature panelists NYC trans rapper Mykki Blanco; DJ and social progress advocate Bambii; producer, activist and event promoter Cindy Li (Ciel / Work In Progress); and Winnie Luk, Managing Director of Rainbow Railroad. The panel is in conjunction with TOMORROW TONIGHT, an event series produced by Absolut and our community partners. Join us after the panel at The Great Hall - more info & RSVP is here: absolut.ca/YYZ We know it takes a village – or a dancefloor – to make a difference. This year, we're donating $20k to Rainbow Railroad, a charity helping LGBTQ+ people find a path to safety around the world. In addition to Absolut's initial donation, your contribution at the door can help save the lives of many more people in need. Come out and be part of the conversation toward creating a better tomorrow, tonight. Donations can be made on site to support our charitable partner, Rainbow Railroad
