WE’RE FUNNY THAT WAY DOT COM!
We are currently working with a branding and venture partner – Soldier Unltd – to bring the spirit and reason WFTW exists to the world! We are creating an entertainment platform where 100% of paid for content goes directly to The Rainbow Charity Network (Foundation) and from there into specific grass roots organisations supporting the queer community.
THAT’S RIGHT 100% OF WHATEVER YOU PAY GOES 100% TO MAKE TRANSFORMATIONAL DONATIONS TO BOOTS ON THE GROUND ORGS SUPPORTING THE LGBTQ2S+ COMMUNITY!
We are dedicated and working our little butts off to make this happen. Stay tuned!

If you’d like to be involved in the festival (sponsorship, volunteer, perform) please write us here we’d love to hear from you.
ROUGH TRADE THE MUSICAL
We are helping to develop Rough Trade the Musical along with in-person workshops and workshop production set for fall/winter 2023. This is happening because of a generous donation from The P. Austin Family Foundation.
ROUGH TRADE is full-length rock musical set in the gritty, glamorous 1980’s. It is based on the life of Canadian Rock Icon Carole Pope’s real life brother Howie, who moved to New York in the mid 80s in pursuit of rock n’ roll, sexual freedom and a new life. He lands in the middle of The AIDs crisis, becomes a founding member of ACT UP and tragically sacrifices his life for love.
Using the hits of Rough Trade, along with Canadian Songwriter Hall of famer Carole Pope’s newer compositions, the show examines the role we all play in remembering the ones we loved while advancing the causes they cared about the most. With incredible, glamorous 80s design elements bring to life the best looks and sounds of the 1980s, the show takes us back in time to an era wh.en art and activism coalesced around a global pandemic that robbed the world of thousands of our brothers, sisters and best friends.
