Hedwig and the Angry Inch: escaping the dungeon of gender, Hart House and rock n roll
"Who thought this beautiful space would be in this old dungeon?" quips Hedwig as she comments on the admittedly Gothic environs of the Hart House Theatre. One-liners? This Hedwig has hundreds of them and James King which he fires off with the precision of a seasoned drag queen.

BACK2SCHOOL: Gender, Sexuality and Support
Going back to school can be an exciting time for students, yet for others a source of anxiety. Youth who fall under the LGBTQ rainbow are prone to abuse and bullying at a far greater rate than their heterosexual counterparts.

Werking Toronto's Halloween: Detox, Kim Chi and Alyssa by RAYMOND HELKIO 13 September 2017.
RuPaul's Drag Race: Queens Werk The World Tour is back at Danforth Music Hall this October to fill our Halloween bags with glitter and mayhem\! Expect provocative queens such as Alyssa Edwards, Detox, Kim Chi, Latrice Royale, and Violet Chachki and from season nine Peppermint, Sasha Velour, Trinity Taylor and Valentina. Raymond Helkio of My Gay Toronto caught up with Detox, Kim Chi and Alyssa to discuss bad interview questions, drag misconceptions and touring.
What's the worst interview question you've ever been asked?
Kim Chi: Someone asked me what my favourite hot dog was, since I live in Chicago, we are known for hot dogs. But I never knew there were different hot dogs to choose from. Just Ketchup or Mustard.
Detox: An interviewer asked me for my phone number once, that was definitely the worst question I have ever heard on someones lips. Usually you should just give it to me and I will decide what to do with it.
Alyssa: Someone had asked me what my nighttime wear was usually. I was like, wha? Bitch had better not ask me what I wear when I am intimate with my lover(s).
What do you think is the biggest public misunderstanding about drag performers?
Kim Chi: That every Drag Queen is a make-up artist as well…lol
Detox: That we all have small penises.
What's the most challenging part of this tour?
Kim Chi: Waking up to travel. The travel is always the hardest part, that's why we all prefer to take the bus because that means more sleep! We like sleep. A lot.
Detox: Never enough time to sit down and eat. Some days you just forget and before you know it, we're done with the show and every restaurant/food spot is closed because its Europe, and Europe isn't fat like we are to have a 24 hour McDonald's on every corner.
The most rewarding?
Detox: Meeting the fans, I love meet & greets, there's always so much love in the air. Especially when the daddies that are fan boys ask me for a smooch!
Alyssa: I love that a majority of the fans can recite my quotes or sayings to me. Makes me feel safe that when I start getting old and forgetful, I can have everyone tongue pop and scream 'BEAST' at me.
