A handful of contestants braved the midday sun and high heels for the Drag Race at Simms Park on Saturday, as part of Queer Culture Weekend.
The competitors had to first apply makeup, choose a dress at the next station, grab a wig and finally shoes, then stop to pose. The three finalists then competed in a lip-synch-off to Christina Aguilera, with Kyle Schouten coming out on top as Queer Culture Queen 2019. The race was just part of the weekend’s festivities, which also include a cocktail party, Fruit Float and White Party Brunch.
The weekend events raised more than $5,000 for the Langley Parnell Bursary.
