As part of Halifax Pride Festival 2018, we are excited to present the biggest, and most diverse drag competition to ever hit the east coast - Atlantic DRAG STAR. Friday, July 27th we will host a fun-filled night of Drag Queens, Drag Kings, Hyper Queens, Non-Binary Drag Performers and anything in between.  All will compete in front of a live studio audience and a panel of esteemed judges for amazing prizes and the title of Atlantic Drag Star.  Our panel will be anchored by finalist from Rupaul’s Drag Race season 6 and All Star 2 - the glamour toad herself  - Ginger Minj. 

Besides our new head judge, we are also ready to announce the rest of our all star judging panel for this July’s Atlantic Drag Star;

Cathy Jones, the comedy legend from This Hour Has 22 Minutes and the winner of 18 Gemini Awards will take our second seat on this year’s judging table. Hailing from Newfoundland, Cathy has had an immensely successful career for over 40 years on stage, screen and in the writers seat. 

Our third judge is the illustrious Jeremy Webb - actor, writer, director and current artistic director of Neptune Theatre.  Hailing originally from the UK and training at The Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, Jeremy has a hugely successful career and amassed a long list of credits and awards along the way. 

As if all this wasn’t enough!  We still have one more surprise in store!  Our host with the most for this summer’s festivities will be Canadian reality star - Gary Levy aka Glitter Gary! 

Don’t forget - our forth judge for this kiki is you - our audience.  Come turn it out for your favourite the night of the competition and help us decide who is going to be crowned the first Atlantic Drag Star!!!

 A portion of profits will be donated to Phoenix Youth Programs.  Stay tuned for updates. It will be night full of talent, excitement, and glitter!
