Toronto's Big Gay Night Gets Partner, MBG for 'The O.C.'-Themed May Edition

Taking place May 26 at the Rivoli

Just last summer, we were reminiscing about the most iconic music moments from The O.C., and now, we'll get to live out those moments IRL thanks to Big Gay Night Toronto, which is taking place at the Rivoli on May 26. 

The recurring live concert series showcasing queer and trans musicians in the city is hosted by Exclaim! Class of 2022 grad CJ Wiley. BGN has already dipped its toes into Coyote Ugly, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Shania Twain — who even gave attendees a special shout-out — and Rocky Horror Picture Show theme nights, and soon, we'll get our chance to say, "Welcome to the O.C., bitch!" right here in the Great White North.

The May edition of BGN will feature performances by Sackville's own Partner and Class of 2023 grad MBG. Wiley's BGN dancers will also join in on the fun, and the event promises an O.C. soundtrack dance party to boot.

"I wanna see some Alex and Marissa couples costumes!" Wiley writes in an event listing. "Gimme some white tanks for a lesbian Ryan Atwood! Who's got eyebrows to pull off a Sandy Cohen moment? Anna season 1 w her classic messenger boy cap OR season 3 when she got those long ass nails + hair extensions. Otherwise, best be showing up in a Summer Roberts crochet bikini or some ridiculous early 2000s wear."

They added, "Let's make Luke's gay dad proud."

All in, tickets will run you $22.63 over at Eventbrite. Check out the announcement below.
