"I love drag because it gives me the opportunity to be my authentic, goofy self and bring my audience happiness. When an audience is happy, so am I! I like my drag to allow people to let loose, have fun, laugh and forget about all the negativity in the world."

Beth

Hometown: Vancouver, BC

"Drag is for any human, or even non-human, who wants to say F#%& YOU to gender stereotypes. It's about celebrating who we are or even who we're not and being whoever we wanna be. Drag is whatever you want it to be and don't let anyone ever try and tell you otherwise!"

Eve 6000

Hometown: Toronto, ON

"As a trans non-binary artist, drag is all about expressing the femininity that I wasn't allowed to express growing up. Drag is a tool that we can all use to express our true selves and be seen as we want to be seen."

Gia Metric

Hometown: Vancouver, BC

"Canada's Drag Race is a sling shot that catapults artists to a platform seen by a global audience. I've been performing in my bedroom ever since I can remember, and now I get to perform in front of the world. I still can't believe I'm a drag race girl! Mom, I'm a superstar!"

Icesis Couture

Hometown: Ottawa, ON

"My pure love for the art form of drag and the creative outlet it provides me fuels me to keep evolving, not only as an artist but as a person. Drag has shown me that it is okay to be different, it's okay to have a voice, it's okay to just be me. To me drag means everything because without it I wouldn't have found my own strength."

Kendall Gender

Hometown: Vancouver, BC

"Drag to me is a celebration. It is about finding a way to uplift through anything. I have faced many adversities in my life and I truly feel like they have all led me to this moment. And because I have gone through the dark parts of life, I can truly appreciate what is to come."

Kimora Amour

Hometown: Scarborough, ON

"To me, drag is a form of artistic therapeutic storytelling where you can evoke emotions while telling the story of life. Being a part of Canada's Drag Race is a form of validation. It means you have that little something extra that sets you apart from others. It is the greatest opportunity, and I'm so happy to represent the Black/Caribbean/South American communities."

Océane Aqua-Black

Hometown: Québec City, QC

"For me, Canada's Drag Race is not just a competition show, it's a wonderful platform where everybody can enjoy my talent and creativity! More importantly, I think drag queens give an important voice to the LGBTQ+ community because we represent their superheroes. I hope people will be able to relate to us and we can act as an inspiration to make the world a magical place."

Pythia

Hometown: Montréal, QC

"Drag for me is the closest thing we have to magic and a method to completely unpack and destroy gender. It grants me the ability to transfigure and embody all of my passions, whether it be theatre, fashion or art, and merge them into one physical form as Pythia. I am not a "female impersonator," I am the image of my imagination, a storyteller and a fantasy made into reality."

Stephanie Prince

Hometown: Calgary, AB

"It's very exciting to be a part of CANADA'S DRAG RACE. The only part of the competition I'm worried about is how jealous the other girls will be of my beauty!"

Suki Doll

Hometown: Montréal, QC

"C'est moi…Suki Doll, excruciatingly delicious and opulent! Mouahhh"

Synthia Kiss

Hometown: Vancouver, BC

"Synthia Kiss is an homage to all the powerful, talented, and funny women in my life – it's a complete honour to walk a mile in their high heels, I'll give them back soon, I swear!"
