VANCOUVER—A loud, proud and operatic Pride celebration will descend on the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden on Aug. 1, in what’s being hailed as a bold move within Vancouver’s Chinese community.

As part of the Alternative Pride event series, artist Paul Wong is organizing a Pride in Chinatown show that features traditional Chinese opera singers on stage with local Asian drag artists. The show, Gender Roles Playing on Stage, is a part of Wong’s year-long artist residency at the garden, and it’s the first time the organization has hosted an LGBTQ Pride event. @jennifergauthier_photo. #pride #occupyingchinatown
