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.”
