Drag queens and LGBT health organization Rézo are the joint focus of day one of Pride Week: The evening begins with la Course Capotée, a Rézo-co-sponsored event that will be familiar to Fringe Fest regulars, wherein local businesses — each represented by a drag queen in stilettos — engage in a friendly obstacle-course race and condom-bagging competition (Ste-Catherine E. & Champlain, 6 p.m., free). Later on at Cabaret Mado, 25 drag queens will celebrate the 25th anniversary of Rézo with a festive benefit show (1115 Ste-Catherine E., 9 p.m., $10).
