Watch the 2020 Web-a-Thon


10 APRIL 2021



With physical distancing still in place, we’re taking The Red Dress Ball online for another special, free digital edition! Gather your virtual bubble of besties and tune-in live to see the show on Saturday April 10, starting at 7:30pm.

Some of Canada’s biggest names in drag entertainment will be joining us for our web-a-thon, and you’ll be helping us raise much needed funds for the Toronto People With AIDS Foundation!

Be sure to follow us on social media:


The Red Dress Ball is dedicated to ensuring ongoing awareness of the continuing impact of HIV/AIDS in Canada, and raises funds to support initiatives & organizations which help people living with, or at risk of HIV/AIDS. The Red Dress Ball has become a space for the creative expression of this spirit. Together, we advocate for a world without HIV stigma, and come together as a community to give back. It’s a little bit kitsch, a ton of fun, and a whole lot of love, all in support of PWA’s amazing work in the lives of people with HIV/AIDS.


The origin of the evening is inspired by the Dress In Red Day on The Friends For Life Bike Rally from Toronto to Montreal. The Friends for Life Bike Rally, completed over 6 days, is the sustaining fundraiser supporting the Toronto People with AIDS Foundation, a service-based charity for those living with HIV. Day 3 of the Rally is a short ride from Adolphustown to Kingston, ON, only 51km compared to some days which stretch well over 100km. The rally uses this day to draw awareness to the cause, and the crew and cyclists all dress in red. More than 200 cyclists wear their most capturing feather boas, hats, glitter, dresses, spandex, and many other fun and inspired garments while drivers on the road honk their horns and residents cheer the riders on along the way. Just like those who cheer us along when we express our flair cycling through their town, we salute the generosity and joy which our guests bring to our evenings to make The Red Dress Ball such a magical night.
