I am Phoenix Ryder, the dark horse in the King category. You may not know who I am yet, but I know after the paegent you won’t be able to forget me. I am a plus size body positive King, giving you full body realness.
As a King, I do more than just drag. I tell stories through my art and advocate for the LGBTQ2SIA youth community and drag inequities. I challenge body image and gender norms, striving to create safe, inclusive spaces. My goal as a drag artist is to ensure all audience members feel comfortable and confident in themselves.
Get ready Ottawa, there’s a new King in town.
