MCQP 2013: Space Cowboys party for Madiba

2013-12-10 13:07
Date: 14 December 2013
Venue: Cape Town Stadium
Ticket Costing: R320- R500 (Available at Computicket)

The Mother City Queer Project's (MCQP) Space Cowboys party, celebrating 20 years of diversity, is certainly going to be the fanciest dressed commemorative event to Madiba that the Mother City or possibly the world, may ever see.

MCQP, established in 1994 as a tribute to the South Africa’s constitution, freedom of speech and rich diversity, was inspired by Nelson Mandela himself. MCQP will pay homage to Tata Madiba, the father of a free and inclusive South Africa – a country where everyone matters, no matter what their race, sexuality, religion or convictions and ask that everyone join  in a minute of silence at 22:00pm during the event, to pay respect to the Mandela family.

MCQP will also have a special commemorative area in honour of Tata Madiba, where visitors to the twentieth Mother City Queer Project can pay respect to the father of our rainbow nation on Saturday, 14 December, and leave their comments and written tributes.

For the perfect fancy-dress costume, MCQP recommends hiring costumes from the following venues:
Vanessa's Party Emporium
This Is Not A Post Office
King Cake
Mardi Gras
Stage Creations
Madcaps Fancy Dress
Cape Town Carnival

Tickets available at Computicket
