It's official, Canada is getting its own version of RuPaul's Drag Race. The big news came as a part of the country's annual Pride month celebrations. We truly couldn't have asked for a better way to conclude the most fabulous time of year. Casting for the series took place across the country this summer, and with all the talented drag queens in Canada, the competition is sure to be fierce. As if all of this isn't exciting enough, the Canada's Drag Race judges have been announced and we can't wait to see them in action.\nEarlier today, September 26, a press release came out announcing that the day we've been waiting for has finally come. We now know who will be judging the highly anticipated Canada's Drag Race series. There's been plenty of speculation about which Canadians would be lucky enough to earn a spot on the panel, but if you ask us, RuPaul couldn't have picked a better crew to assist in crowning more drag royalty.\nFirst up is none other than RuPaul's Drag Race runner-up, and the first Canadian competitor on the show, Brooke Lynn Hytes. Hytes was born in Toronto, Ontario and has become known in the drag world as the "Queen of the North." It looks like she may have some serious competition for that title after Canada's Drag Race premieres!\nView this post on Instagram Herstory! I remember a year ago I was in the @worldofwonder offices, just after filming season 11, and I said “I want a Canadian Drag Race...and I want to be a judge!” Well, dreams come true! I couldn’t be more excited and honored to be a permanent judge on @canadasdragrace and to be able to help show the amazing talent the north has to offer. Thankyou @rupaulofficial @rupaulsdragrace @cravecanada @worldofwonder @blueantmedia and Bell Media for making this dream a reality. Life is good and I’m so incredibly lucky.
