WomXn’s Night Fills the Lounge


The inaugural WomXn’s Night at Friends of Dorothy Lounge on Mar 10th was a huge success!

Wall to wall womXn!

This event had an early start at 5:30 but within minutes, the place was packed. So much energy! So much fun!

Old friendships were rekindled. New friendships were made. Laughter, drinks, and excellent food were had.

If you missed it, you’re in luck. Kelowna Rainbow Women will be having a WomXn’s Night at Friends of Dorothy Lounge the first Tuesday of every month!

Watch Facebook for details of next month’s WomXn’s Night!

WomXn’s Night

This is an evening to come together and celebrate womXn in Kelowna’s LGBTQ2+ community!

We want to create a new space where lesbians, bi and queer women, including all trans, two-spirit, and non-binary people, can meet and have fun, and experience community together.

This is a trial run, the first of what we hope will be a monthly event. Let’s fill Friends of Dorothy Lounge to capacity! Come for dinner, stay for drinks and conversation.

Allies are welcome, and this event is a safe and inclusive space for all.

Karaoke Night

Come sing your heart out with the PRC for a night of karaoke!

We’ll be starting off with some fun Disney tunes from beloved movies, and we have about 100,000 karaoke songs to choose from if Mickey Mouse’s music isn’t your thing. Belt out your go-to karaoke songs to celebrate OutWeek 2020!

Snacks will be provided. LGBTQIA2+ folks and allies welcome!

Karaoke Night will be held on Friday, March 6th, in COM 201 from 7:00pm to 10:00pm.
