The Kinky Quarter’s opening speech will be held by the gay, trans, Canadian stand-up comedian James Lorien MacDonald. Based in Helsinki, he will now bring his tales of kink-gone-wrong, queerness and trans experiences to EuroPride Park Stockholm. Bringing you surreal stories of when the kinksessions didn’t go quite as planned, queerness in general, and the weird parts about gender we don’t talk about.

Perfect for EuroPride, MacDonald is quite international himself – the half-finnish, half-Scottish, all-Canadian comedian has performed all over Scandinavia, Germany, Canada and even Singapore. He also founded Feminist Comedy. In an interview with Darkside, James teased us with what he’ll talk about on the first day of The Kinky Quarters.

I have a particularly good story about a spreader bar and a kitchen incident, but you’ll just have to hear it live, tells James.

Make sure to clear your schedule for this joyful, middle-aged, gay, transgender canadian, as this is something you certainly don’t want to miss!

The Kinky Quarters is a separate area within EuroPride Park Stockholm dedicated to the BDSM and fetish-scene, and opens the 1st of August. The opening with James Lorien MacDonald is held at 6 pm.
