On May 27 at the Berkeley Church, M Team Productions (fronted by Proud FM DJ Mike Chalut) will be hosting its third annual Climax event, a charitable initiative to generate funds to help PFLAG Toronto support the gay community. This year, Chalut has teamed up with the CRTC, comedian Richard Ryder, The Second City’s British Teeth, So You Think You Can Dance Canada and emerging performer Kreesha Turner to put on a variety show–style event. There’s still no word on who the big headliner will be (maybe see you there, Elton John? How about you, Hilary Duff?), but since it’s all for a good cause, we wouldn’t mind if it turned out to be Lady Gaga (also known as the world’s biggest ham).
