My documentary They Came From Venus will air on Thursday, July 2nd, 2015 at 8pm ET/PT on OUTtv Network Canada as part of the docu-series Outspoken Biography. Update: Due to popular demand, the documentary will air again Thursday, August 6th, 2015 at 8pm ET/PT.
The documentary takes a look at the last 20 years of The House of Venus art collective and how it shaped LGBT culture across Canada. Yes, yes, I was a part of that collective for a time and spearheaded The House of Venus Show but this isn’t about that! The documentary focuses on co-founder Michael Venus as he prepares for the 20th annual Wiggle show and traces the origins and influence of this unique art collective as it relates to nightlife, music and drag culture. With DJ Dickey Doo, Greg George/Luka, Douglas Coupland and many Venus “kids” from the last 20 years.
