Join us for an Ask Me Anything with Xtra’s ‘Drag Race’ experts

Kevin O’Keeffe and Russ Martin will take your questions ahead of the “Canada’s Drag Race” Season 3 finale

Who is going to join Priyanka and Icesis Couture in being named “Queen of the North”? We’ll find out next Thursday when Canada’s Drag Race crowns its Season 3 winner.

But before that drama kicks off, we here at Xtra have some drama of our own. After a season that saw epic Snatch Game performances, iconic runways (that Paint category!) and whatever Fierce was up to every week in the drama department, Canada’s Drag Race was once again appointment TV. And we know you have opinions about it—so that’s why we’ve united two of our faves to share their takes on all of this season’s action (and Drag Race as a whole) with you.

Next Wednesday Sept. 7 at 3 p.m. ET/12 p.m. PT, official Xtra Drag Race herstorian Kevin O’Keeffe and After the Sashay host Russ Martin will come together for the greatest crossover event in history to answer your burning Drag Race questions. Who are their personal picks to win? Was all of the Miss Fiercalicious drama this season worth it? Did Halal Bae deserve better? What are our drag experts looking forward to about the rumoured Canada vs. The World season? And should we finally lay the Lip Sync for the Crown format to rest across the Drag Race franchises? You need to join the Xtra Community in order to post questions or comments.

“Throughout my time covering Drag Race, my favourite part has been interacting with readers, be it on Facebook Live during the Kikis With Kevin to in the comments on Xtra’s website,” Kevin says. “I can’t wait to join you all for a conversation ahead of the Canada’s Drag Race finale!”

“I love all things drag and after an amazing season chatting with the Canada’s Drag Race cast for After The Sashay I’m excited to chat with the Xtra audience,” says Russ. 

It’s all going down in the comments section below this post, where Kevin and Russ will take your questions live for a no-holds-barred Ask Me Anything.
