About the Performers
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.
Hello beautiful, my name is Hollie Woods! I’m so excited to be stepping into the drag scene and thrilled to see how much our community is growing in Kamloops! I was born in Revelstoke and raised in the small town of Chase and am currently working as a hairstylist in Sorrento. I love being lakeside in the summer and bundled up on my board in the winter! Growing up in a small town, drag race was definitely one of my escapes and helped me to become more confident in my skin. I’ve always been drawn towards drag with the love of hair and makeup. I’d say my drag is inspired by Hollywood glamour, strong female figures, icons and basic bitches. Can’t wait to party with you!
