Filipina drag queen Kimmy Couture is a contestant on the third season of Canada’s Drag Race, a 10-episode, one-hour original competition series that follows Canadian drag artists as they compete for the title of “Canada’s Next Drag Superstar.”
The drag queen from Ottawa, Ontario joined 11 other queens in the Canadian franchise of the hit reality series “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” which premiered on July 14, 2022.
In her video, Kimmy said she identifies as a trans woman, and noted that she wants to be the first trans winner of the local franchise.
“My drag is very bold, beautiful, and fierce with a mix of alternative and club kid. The Kimmy Couture is you’ll never get bored because I’m a fireball. I can do everything,” she said.
“My drag was inspired by the trans community way back before when they actually started doing drag, and I’m here to continue that legacy,” she added.
In an Instagram post, Kimmy said she wants to end the low-ranking curse: “I am on Canada’s Drag Race Season 3 and it’s time to break the Southeast Asian curse.”
She added: “To all my trans brothers and sisters, the Asian community, and to all POC, to my family and friends, my drag family, my Ottawans, and to all the people in my homeland, to every person who’s been rooting for me and supporting me since the beginning. I am thankful and grateful for each and every one of you. I dedicate this all to you!”
She is the third Filipina to join Canada’s Drag Race after Kyne (season 1) and Stephanie Prince (season 2).
