Russell David talks about the challenges of appearing without makeup, a sparkly dress, and fabulous shoes

Steve meets Fabulous Russella at Toronto’s equally fabulous Convento Rico to talk about her past as Russell David.  We see her perform with the other featured drag queens, fearlessly engaging the crowd, looking to play and engage.

Beat up, bullied as a child as gay kids often are, Russella’s origins go all the way back to surprising his family guests by appearing in his sister’s clothes.  Steve challenges Russell to come out… as himself.
