Pride had a different feel to it this year — mainly because Fierté Montréal was primarily virtual. Nevertheless, fans of Montreal's drag scene know how to fill the void left by a parade-less summer. It's as simple as cyberstalking your favourite queens and dissecting every move they've ever made until your computer is on the verge of exploding. Proceed with caution.\nEditor's Choice: 7 Hidden Gems In Montreal To Check Out That Most Locals Don't Even Know About (VIDEO)\nFrom Instagram to Canada's Drag Race, we're soaking in as much drag as we can, trying to get a dose of amazing local LGBTQ+ talent.\nIf you've watched all your favourite queens' videos and there's nothing new on your newsfeed, then it's time to expand your roster of drag icons to stan.

"My numbers often tackle this through . . . music, comedy, parody [and] aesthetics."\nShe told MTL Blog that she hopes the future of drag is less about gatekeeping and more about inclusion and diversity.\nFollow her on Instagram here.\nLulu Shade\nView this post on Instagram Is this how you sit? . . .

It has kings, queens and in betweens of all sorts," Lulu told MTL Blog. "I see drag in Montreal as not only in the bars late at night. I believe it will go on TV shows, movies, commercials, and you name it because drag can do anything."\nFollow her on Instagram here.\nSelma Gahd\nView this post on Instagram Thank you for joining the circle for Digital COVEN 3. The show was beyond INCREDIBLE. We might not be together in the physical realm, but I know the bonds we've created are stronger than ever. I already have many people asking me when the next show is. I don't know just yet... I will do a bit more scrying before I make my decision.

Expect the unexpected at her show COVEN, which features metal music, Mortal Kombat characters, Britney Spears, zombies, evil clowns and the black plague.\n"My favourite thing about the Montreal drag scene is how willing our audience is to follow along with our wild ideas," she said.\nFollow her on Instagram here.\nStella Stone\nView this post on Instagram Here are the rest of the magical works of @olivier_clertant as my last post of 2019, enjoy! #ModelLife #LivingDolls #Queens #Opulent #Beauty #Grace #MissUnitedStates #Bye2019 A post shared by STELLA STONE 💎🧿💎 (@missstellastone) on Dec 26, 2019 at 8:17am PST\nStella Stone describes herself as pageantry glam with a campy twist.\n"There's a lot of established queens which makes it harder for newcomers to get noticed," she told MTL Blog. "However with a bit of time and tough skin — like anything else — your time shall come!"\nFollow her on Instagram here.\nMasala Massi\nView this post on Instagram Still vibing off of @fiertemontreal and the magnitude of accomplishments that were made with Montreal's queer desi community. I still have to do my rounds of thank yous but in the meantime, let me spice up your Friday and serve you that desi masala s.ass ;) #pride #fierte #parade #southasia #indian #masalamassi #southasian #desi #drag #queen #montreal #quebec #dragqueen #canada A post shared by Masala Massi (@masalamassi) on Aug 23, 2019 at 11:02am PDT\nMasala Massi describes her drag as "authentic, personally empowering and energizing," and said she takes inspiration from her dance troupe Veils of Bollywood.\n"Drag intrigued me primarily because of the artistry, theatrics and platform it can provide artists to spark positive change — not only in their intimate social circles, but within themselves and the communities where they live," she told MTL Blog.\n"This means making a more conscious effort to include diversity as a mandate in programming, planning and hiring of employees, including artists."\nFollow her on Instagram here.\nCOVID-19 has caused countless live performances to be cancelled, so a little love and support for the local drag community goes a long way.
