The new Kiki Haus of KFC, in colab with La Paz Es Diversa, organizes Cabaret de Fantasia, a virtual drag cabaret for the queers and inventadas from North to South of the continent, part of this year’s edition of Pervers/cité.
Pervers/cité – a French word play that could be translated to English as Perverse/city – is an annual festival that takes place in the city of Montreal, Canada, as a radical and anticapitalist response to Pride celebrations which are becoming more corporate and mainstream.

The cabaret will be broadcasted live via Zoom on August 22 at 8 pm (7 pm CDMX, 6 pm La Paz) and it will be hosted by Calafia, the Mother of the new kiki Haus of Calafia.
Tickets are 10 CAD or PWYC so no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
Cabaret de Fantasía is organized by queer latinxs for queer latinxs, BIPOC and white allies.
To us, community should be the base and the main focus to create a better and stronger society, that’s why the goal of this event is creating community and uniting people from all over the continent in a soirée of art, music, and performances.
Cabaret de Fantasía is a fundraiser where half of the total collected will go towards the performers, and the other half will be allocated to support La Paz es Diversa and their collaborative program with Alianza Comunitaria de BCS to help the vulnerable population in the state of Baja California Sur, Mexico who are currently struggling economically due to the pandemic.
Additionally, performers will have the option to keep their share or to make a donation in their name to support those affected by the Beirut explosion.
