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.

Freida Whales is Swimming Up a Storm, West Coast Style


Freida Whales, a well-known Queen about town for her Drag Queen Storytime, a series of children’s events which won her Kelowna’s Daily Courier Newsmaker of the Year for 2019, is about to embark on her second appearance with her team on Virtual Drag Show: West Coast Canada.

Tyson Cook, Kelowna’s Freida first met Mina Mercury, the host, at a drag event in town a few years ago and kept in contact with the intention of someday working together.

Voila, Virtual Drag Show!

This fabulous whale of an ocean activist has loved working on this series of projects, having fun exploring more creative ways to make videos, getting into the scriptwriting, and experimenting with storyboarding.

When asked what she enjoyed the most, the Okanagan orca says, “I really enjoy being able to take a song and tell a story. This has made my storytelling even more in-depth.”
