Kind Kendall
Like Amanda Brugel / Rita Blue
The Handmaid’s Tale

After meeting Amanda Brugel as a judge on Canada’s Drag Race season two, and being such a huge fan of The Handmaid’s Tale – it seemed natural to put on his shoes (or in this case – slippers)

Stephanie Prince
Like Sandra Oh / Eve Polastri
Kill Eve

Sandra Oh is one of the most influential and talented Canadian actresses to have broken into the mainstream market since her days. Grey’s Anatomy at Kill Eve and even his scene stealing The Diary of a Princess.

Gisele Lullaby
In The Role Dorval / Criquette Rockwell
The heart has its reasons

Anne Dorval is one of the most remarkable and versatile Canadian artists I know! Of Rooms in the City, to the wonderful films of Xavier Dolan, she knows how to give a moving and memorable performance. For me, his collaborations with hilarious writer Marc Brunet, like the Rockwell twins, greatly influenced my sense of humor. To date, Ashley (The heart has its reasons) is the hardest character I’ve had to impersonate, but it gives me so much joy to play her.

I pay tribute to her today because she is incomparable, inspiring and not afraid to laugh at herself – like me!

Priyanka
Like Ed the sock

Ed the sock…. I know what choice! Growing up in Whitby, Ontario, all I ever wanted to be was a TV host, so I watched so much TV and watched all the many TV hosts there were. The reason Ed the Sock appealed to me was because there was a no-nonsense approach to how he interviewed and how he was. It inspired me to be who I want to be and to keep pushing the boundaries.

Rita Baga
In the role of Pascale Bussières / Alys Robi
My Life In Cinemascope

Pascale Bussières brought an emblematic lady of French-speaking culture, Alys Robi, to our big screens in the film Bittersweet Memories. Her performance even earned her a Genie Award for Best Actress!

The film really blew my mind and showcased the incredible career trajectory of the first Quebec artist to break into the international scene. Additionally, her career began at the National Theater in 1936, right in the neighborhood that is now the Village in Montreal, a neighborhood that has long sought out people who express divergent genders and sexualities.

Icesis Couture
As Pamela Anderson/CJ Parker
Baywatch

I cast Pamela Anderson in her iconic role as CJ Parker from Baywatch because in my generation, Pamela Anderson was THE blonde bombshell. Growing up, Pamela was plastered all over my walls, all over my TV screen, and all over magazines. As a kid, she was the definition of beauty to me and would end up being part of the reason I decided to do drag. She is one of Canada’s icons and I am proud to represent her even in this small way.


Want to see these six queens take the stage? Good news! They will be reunited for one night only.
