Ella Lamoureux is one of the founding performers of the Kelowna drag scene. From Kelowna’s Next Drag Superstar drag competition, Embodiment, #2muffs1collr, to recent star on Call Me Mother Season 1, Ella has carved out her place as one of the most influential and stunning drag performers in Kelowna. A makeup artist by trade, Ella will eternally tease you with her beauty. But, watch out if you displease her — that tongue is quick and sharper than you think! She’s generally “as sweet as cherry pie” and she brings so much love and joy to the community. A true charmer, Ella Lamoureux is Kelowna’s Sweetheart.
Dora Knob made her debut at Kelowna's Next Drag Superstar in June 2019 alongside extra special guest Cinthia Lee Fontaine of RuPaul's Drag Race. She has since performed for Nuit Blanche at the Centre Culturel Francophone de l'Okanagan, Fruitcake of Rebellious Unicorn at Status Nightclub in Vernon, at Friends of Dorothy as well as private events. In July 2020 she was also cast & filmed in a yet to be released short movie production. More recently she has been co-hosting Drag Queen Paint & Sips art classes at Dunnenzies Pizza Mission & Soma Craft Cidery.
Wanda Lust fell in love with drag while travelling around the globe. Inspired by all the artists she met along the way, she’s back in her hometown ready to spread the love.
