RMG Fridays: Put Your Best Heels Forward!

Jun 2, 2023, 07:00 PM - Jun 2, 2023, 10:00 PM

Come share Pride with us at the RMG! It takes courage to wear heels with confidence, imagine with a wig! Some of Durham’s best drag performers are going to show us how it’s done. Come see our divas and bring your hottest heels. Get ready to stomp down the runway at the end of the night!

Orlandra Bloom is your Filipina Goddess and dancing diva of Oshawa! This queen loves to hit the stage all over Ontario and can often be found dipping, spinning, and splitting to all her favourite hits. Orlandra is a natural born drag queen who has always admired the women in her life and how they’d get themselves put together.

Big D. Elle sashayed into the Toronto drag scene a year ago and has been delivering jaw-dropping performances across the GTA ever since. Bearded and beautiful, they are here, they are queer, and they are ready to turn the party.

Kali Kontour is a young drag artist from Oshawa. Kali was inspired to start drag after teaching herself how to sew and do makeup during the COVID-19 lockdowns. She began performing in March 2022 and has taken Durham Region by storm over the last year. Since beginning drag Kali has had the opportunity to teach children about Pride during story times, participate in her first ever drag pageant, and connect with so many inspirational people that she is honoured to have had the opportunity to meet. Kali’s favourite part of drag is the opportunity to connect with her inner femininity that she often felt ashamed of as a child. Now, she is fearless.

Audrey Gold Bloom is a new drag performer who first hit the stage earlier this year. Her inspirations are old school divas, dance hits, and contemporary power performers. Audrey is a sensational performer who knows how to command the stage. This young queen is a force to be reckon with and is set for the stars!
