NOW turns 25 years bold

NOW Magazine - Anniversary special - - Toronto Symphony Orchestra - Pho­tos by MARK COATSWORTH and DAVID HAWE

NOW Mag­a­zine cel­e­brated its 25th an­niver­sary in style with a mon­ster blowout at the Phoenix night­club. Partiers packed the house, groov­ing to the loop­tronic may­hem of Holy Fuck and the the Kalakutu rhythms of Afrobeat orches­tra Afrodizz while Zero Grav­ity ac­ro­bats, stilt walk­ers and the B-Girlz drag trio en­ter­tained. Mayor David Miller stopped by, as did past NOW cover sub­jects like lo­cal icon Lor­raine Se­gato, comic Joanna Downey, chanteuse Mary Mar­garet O’Hara, queer cabaret star Ali Eis­ner and all-girl power trio Hunter Valen­tine.
