The red carpets are being rolled out and the golden curtains are being hung—it’s nearly showtime!
Dress your best and check out the performers from RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars, Season 8 on Saturday, May 27th, right here in Victoria.
This Red Carpet Extravaganza event has been organized by The House of JIMBO, a design studio run by Jimbo and their collective of talented artists, and hosted by the First Metropolitan United Church.
Performing will be Allstars Jimbo, Heidi N Closet, and Brooke Lynn Hytes! A combination you won’t want to miss.
“Heidi and Brooke Lynn are such important friends and drag family – it’s a dream to be able to have them in Victoria and at The House of JIMBO, my favourite place in the world.”
For those unfamiliar, Jimbo has already taken to the televised drag stage two times over — they were on Season 1 of Canada’s Drag Race and then was called back into action for the UK vs the World spin-off of the Emmy award winning program, and now feature in RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars, Season 8. Local celebrity alert!
“I’m looking forward to celebrating with my Victoria and Vancouver Island community who have supported me and lifted me for the past 15 years,” Jimbo said in the build-up to Saturday’s event.
All the members of The House of Jimbo invite people to come and share this special evening with them in celebration of the drag community and artistic expression.
Also — there’s an afterparty being thrown at The House of Jimbo, running from 11 p.m. to late!
“I would love to thank all of our amazing fans who are coming to celebrate and enjoy the show!”
