Glitter & Grease: For the first time in eight years Edmonton Pride Festival returns to Churchill Square this weekend, starting with the Glitter & Grease event Friday night, when Luciana, Queen of Electro will be singing loudly and proudly with openers Daniel Martin & the Infamous and Circle of Wolves. The next day and night it’s Virginia to Vegas, Amy Hef and recently announced headliner Fefe Dobson, as well heaps of other artists, food trucks, 2SLGBTQ+ vendors and the famous beer gardens. The most fun annual party in town with the best outfits by far, you and your favorite feather boa don’t want to miss this.

His comedy draws him from his working-class roots, and he has a nice look-back at SCTV last year with Damonda Tschritter you can find on YouTube.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Still wondering if you should watch yet another unnecessary spinoff of a second-tier Star Wars character? The answer is: yeah, why not? Wrapping up not-burning questions like why does Kenobi tell Luke Skywalker his father was murdered by Darth Vader and where did Leia, uh, get her gun holster, the show’s co-villain Inquisitor Reva seemed annoyingly able to get away with murder, but this does iron itself out by episode 4 when Vader really steps in as himself again. The final episode brought tears to my eyes in its climactic fight, so good enough.
Details: Now streaming on Disney+
