WELL WE'RE BACK! And back with a vengeance committed to raising funds for small queer charities across Canada (and maybe someday internationally).

The festival kicks off with it’s big ticket gala at the Alumnae Theatre. This year’s “Gayla Gala” is a 90 minute fast-paced variety show featuring festival talent and loads of Canada’s favourite personalities. We’re celebrating performance of all kind so, as is the case with all of our galas, you’ll never know what you might get.

Scheduled to appear: Lea DeLaria (Orange is the New Black), Stephen Wallem (Nurse Jackie), Colin Mochrie(Whose Line), Deb McGrath (Little Mosque), Gavin Crawford (Because News), Shoshana Sperling (The Monkey Bunch), Teresa Pavlinek (The Jane Show), Martha E. Chaves (JFL), Areta M. (Slam Poet), Belle Jumelles(Burlesque), David Benjamin Tomlinson (Starf*cker), Chantel Marostica (JFL), Lucas Silveira (the Cliks), Ryan Graham Hinds and introducing Aastha Lal and Amir Brandon. Festival founder Maggie Cassella (standup, TV host, neat freak) will host this all-star and future-star show.

Tickets are $300 a person or $3000 for a groupof ten and can be purchased online at or by writing (Tax receipts available in accordance with CRA rules and regulations).

Oh and there’s fun food too. Remember we go for fun not fancy. And cupcakes! There will be cupcakes!! Rubber chickens reserved for the stage.

We know this is a big ticket but thanks to our sponsors EVERY penny of it goes directly to the Foundation which means it goes directly to helping a small queer charity somewhere in Canada stay on it’s feet. Give yourselves a pat on the back k?

Oh and don’t forget to pat our gold sponsor Cineplex media and our Media Sponsors CP24 and CTV Toronto

The We’re Funny That Way Festival is a fundraiser for the We’re Funny That Way Foundation which aims to give transformational gifts to queer charities across Canada. This year we are providing funds to help create an LGBTQ drop in centre in Scarborough, Ontario called Toby’s Place. For more information on Toby’s place please go here .

The festival is produced pro bono by Ford Cassella Productions.
