It was already a hot evening in Montreal, but things really heated up at Fierte Montreal Pride when Jinkx Monsoon, winner of Season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race, stepped out on stage to perform in front of thousands of eager fans.
Montreal is a well-known for having some of the best drag queen performers. They are very critical of anyone new coming into their territory. However, when Fierte Montreal Pride welcomed Jinkx Monsoon to the stage on Saturday, August 17, within moments the crowd was in love.
Jinkx won the crowd over as she opened her set by greeting the crowd in French. Throughout her 15 minute performance, Jinkx belted out a number of her hit songs and continued to converse with the crowd in both English and French.
By the time Jinkx performed her last song, Blame Canada, the crowd was in love with the Seattle drag queen.
