About Khari: Khari Wendell McClelland is a diversely talented and ever-evolving artist. Originally from Detroit, Khari has become a darling on the Canadian music scene with reviewers lauding his performances as a clever mix of soul and gospel. Khari’s songwriting crosses genres and generations, joyfully invoking the spirit of his ancestors who straddled the US-Canadian border in efforts to escape slavery and discrimination. His music draws from this rich history, integrating the rhythms and folklore of early African-Americans with contemporary sounds and stories of struggle.
About Maiden China: Maiden China is an intersectional feminist drag performer with a focus on hyphenated identity politics and androgyny. Blending drag, theatre, and politics, they push forward a mandate of representational love and liberation with alien aesthetics.
About Charlie Demers: Charlie is a comedian, activist, and writer. You can hear him as a regular on CBC's The Debaters.
About DJ O Show: DJ O Show is a Squamish Nation Councillor, DJ, Performer, Motivational Speaker, and Workshop Facilitator.
Support OneCIty Vancouver Candidates Brandon Yan and Christine Boyle (Council) and Jennifer Reddy, Erica Jaaf, and Carrie Bercic (School Board) as they seek election on October 20.
