Mina Gerges Brings Diversity to Drag Race Canada’s Pit Crew

While RuPaul’s Drag Race has had racial diversity in the past, this is the first time body type diversity has graced the Pit Crew.

Drag Race Canada’s debut season has much to be thankful for.

Though Canada’s Pit Crew was initially introduced as a small group, in recent episodes of the show it expanded. In episode four, a full ten members of the Pit Crew arrive to help the queens play a matching game. The group, which truly spanned the spectrum in terms of skin tone, made history as model and activist Mina Gerges became the first Pit Crew member of size.

TV Night with Freida Whales

Great night, packed house, fun games – what better way to celebrate the premiere of Canada’s Drag Race than with the Okanagans first ever drag race viewing party at Dunnenzies!!!

Freida Whales made a real splash hosting to the full house at Dunnenzies Downtown. The party started out with a personal message sent in from the stunning Anastarzia Anaquway, then dove right into the episode.

The whole house was fully immersed in the show, cheering on the queens and loving the judges’ Canadian puns. Conversations from tables were overheard tooting and booting the first batch of Northern queens. Due to the outrageous laughter, Jimbo’s performance seemed to be the “TV Night” crowd favourite.

Every week episodes will be followed by a different unique drag-related game, designed to be enjoyed by all levels of drag race fans. The winning table takes home a coveted special edition Freida Whales’s “TV Night Royalty” pin and Dunnenzies goodies. The first game up was a “Match Game” extravaganza, matching the quote to the queen and the challenge to the season. The crowd was having a gag-worthy time trying to guess the correct answers, and left the party keen to know what next week’s challenge would be.

Reservations are mandatory due to continuing health restrictions and limited seating.
