Justin Abit

Justin Abit (he/him) is a Vancouver-adjacent debonair Drag King! He won King of Hearts 2020 at his debut, became Mr. Gay Vancouver 41 and Imperial Crown Prince 50 to continue his service to the community, and then joined the cast of Call Me Mother Season 2 on Out TV. Justin is a show-stopping heartbreaker with sizable…swagger, doing it all ‘a bit’ with class, charm and an abundance of glitter.

Eva Lasting

Eva Lasting Is a little hippy, dippy and flippy! Known for kicks, flips, and splits but also for being a bit of a goofball with a dash of fairy magic. They are also known as the yoga queen, teaching yoga classes in drag! Get ready to celebrate love with this high energy performer who is here to nama-slay!

She co-hosts two monthly cosplay-themed shows embodying her favourite video game villains and anime characters in custom made outfits. On top of being a showrunner and host, she has built a legacy as "the butt of Vancouver" creating nearly every drag performer's body padding.

She is currently one of Vancouver's Imperial Crown Princesses supporting Karmella Barr's reign as Emprex.
