      Here's some bad news and some good news for Pride partygoers.

      U.S. actor Kate Moennig, known for her roles on The L Word and Young Americans, was scheduled to DJ at Flygirl's Chicas in the Afternoon party on July 31 during Pride.

      Alas, Moennig has had to cancel due to an increase in the shooting schedule for the crime-drama series Ray Donovan, on which she stars as Ray's investigative assistant Lena.

      But, fortuitous for Vancouverites, a new DJ has been found.

      Taryn Manning, who plays Tiffany "Pennsatucky" Doggett on Orange is the New Black, will be stepping in.

      As a DJ, Manning has worked alongside the likes of Diplo, DJ Spider, Mia Moretti, and more.

      She'll be joined by four other DJs (Riki Rocket, Nathalie Morel, Miss M, and Kasey Riot) to drop the beats at this Pride powerhouse of a garden party at the Sheraton Wall Centre (1088 Burrard Street) from 4 to 9 p.m. right after the Pride parade wraps up in the West End.

      Tickets are $50 in advance and can be purchased online.
