In 2018 she was featured in the second season of the CBC ART documentary series “Canadaʼs a Drag” representing Montreal.

"Growing up, I looked up at female role models rather than male role models in popular culture. I always connected more to the feminine narrative than the masculine one. In Drag I think that I allow myself, with the permission of my audience, to celebrate the power and possibilities that come with embracing the expression of a feminine heroin. Its not so much a statement about womankind, but more a statement about the power that lies in full unashamedgender expression. Drag is a subversive act against popular norms disguised as fun Friday night at the bar. " Crystal Slippers.
