About the Performers

Ella Lamoureux
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, 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.

Rez Daddy
Rez Daddy is looking for honeys to spoil. He's got baby mama drama, blankets on his windows, and a beat up car. Looking to snag? He's your guy. He might even give you a hickey while you're at it. Rez Daddy is gonna wiggle his frog butt and show off his beer gut.

Belle Ini
Belle Ini also known as Queeny Belle Ini loves to screw with gender in and out of drag. She just had her second drag birthday on Sept 17, so she was born a covid drag baby. This year she finally got her first true taste of drag performing and hosting, and has been growing every time she gets on stage. She loves being able to transform into whoever she wants to be, looking at herself in the mirror, and most of all, performing for a loud, beautiful audience. Make sure you follow her on Insta and like her Facebook page @queenybelleini

About the Charities


About the IRSSS
IRSSS provides essential services to Residential School Survivors, their families, and those dealing with Intergenerational traumas. These impacts affect every family and every community across B.C. and Canada. This fact is most evident in the Corrections Canada Services-the numbers of First Nations people incarcerated, Child and Family Services child apprehensions, the high number of people on social assistance, unemployment and underemployed, lower levels of education, the lowest number within an ethnic minority of “determinants of health”, the list of impacts is extremely high while the services available to effectively assist impacts of Residential Schools remain quite low.

One of the Society’s goals is to continually expand our support to partner organizations and maximize access to culturally sensitive, emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual care.



About 2 Spirits in Motion
The '2 Spirits in Motion Society' (2SiMS) is a registered national non-profit society incorporated in July 2018 under the relevant society laws of the Government of Canada. The organization is governed by a ten (10) member provisional Board of Directors from various locations throughout Canada. 2SiMS held its first Annual General Meeting (AGM) on January 26, 2020 in Toronto, Ontario during the 2nd Wind Forum on 2 Spirit People.

2SiM was born from discussions at Two Spirits in Motion: the 1st Canadian Forum on 2 Spirit Peoples, HIV/AIDS and Health held in Edmonton, Alberta in February 2003.  There were just over 82 delegates at the inaugural Forum where a number of key recommendations were made to advance 2 Spirit community needs and issues in Canada at the national level.  Two significant recommendations were to:

  1. Create a national 2 Spirit organization; and,
  2. continue hosting national Forums on 2 Spirit people.

We respectfully acknowledge that this event takes place on the unceded, traditional territory of the syilx (Okanagan) people. To learn more about the syilx nation please visit their website.
