The moment we've all been waiting for has finally arrived. This weekend was the world-debut of Canada's Drag Race, the Canadian version of the world phenomenon, RuPaul's Drag Race. While we still have many weeks to go before the first recipient of the Canadian crown is chosen, we're proud to report that a Montreal queen won the first-ever maxi challenge of the entire series.\nIf you know the world of drag, it's charismatic, campy and creative. It's also insanely competitive.\nAnd although we like to think of Canadians as nice and polite, the Canadian drag scene is no exception.\nCan I get an "eh-men" up in here?\nAs the queens walked in one-by-one, all I could think was "O, yaaassss, Canada."\nBut we all know that if you've got queens coming from the fashion capital of Canada, you've got some high expectations. And let me tell you: our girls did not disappoint.\n"Bonjour, hi," Rita Baga said as she walked in, with Quebec regalness that even make Queen Celine proud.\nFellow Montrealer, Kiara, walked in, looking as gorgeous as a Montreal fashion house announcing, "en français s'il vous plaît?"\nMontreal had definitely arrived.\nNot only did the girls bring the Quebec looks and mentality to the workroom, but also to the runway.\nView this post on Instagram True, North, Strong and FIERCE. 🇨🇦 All hail your #CanadasDragRace Queens! Coming to @CraveCanada July 2.
