RuPaul herself would be gasping out at the talent of the drag queens that performed at the Fierce & Feminine Drag Show on May 30.

The evening, which was hosted in Penticton’s Orchard House Theatre, was organized by the YES Project to fundraise for Penticton’s Youth Centre and Foundry Penticton. Dancers, established drag queens and up-and-comers all took the stage to flaunt their stuff and earn that money.

The crowd was eating up the performances and living for the comedy and style of all those who braved the stage.
