‘Canada’s Drag Race’ Season 2: After the Sashay with Adriana

Xtra contributor Russ Martin gets all the tea from this week’s eliminated “Drag Race” contestant

Hailing from Quebec by way of Colombia, Adriana brought body-ody-oddddy to Season 2 of Canada’s Drag Race. Her sexed up outfits regularly elicited gay gasps from the judging panel. But it was her personality and charm in the werk room that truly won over fans.

Adriana’s time on the show came to an end last week, but the star was in high spirits as she joined Xtra’s After The Sashay following her elimination for a conversation about queer youth, her dual identities as a Canadian and a Colombian and why we need a trans woman on season three.

Russ Martin is a writer whose work has been published in Flare, the Toronto Star, The Walrus, and NewNowNext. He lives in Toronto.
