From the Desk of Carlotta Gurl

Monday 20th, March 2017 / 15:02

Welcome back, my spring-kissed blossoms. This is your time of renewal and resurgence. I’m just now waking up from my post-wintery hibernation and that crazy shit I drank to get me over the seasonal blues is wearing off. Let’s hope we’re all feeling as excited as I am about the upcoming Spring Equinox. This is one of my favourite times of the year. Aside from the occasional hay fever, clogged sinuses, and reddened itchy eyes, it really is a wonderful season to feel alive and really any good allergy pill (and tequila) will kick those pesky ailments to the curb. It is also around this time I find myself being very thankful for all the good things that have happened in my life.

Indeed, my biggest accomplishment and greatest joy would have to be the success of my weekly show, Absolutely Dragulous, which just celebrated its six-year anniversary. I’ve learned so much about myself creatively as a performer and MC from this particular show. I’ve also had the great pleasure of working alongside and learning a lot from some of the greatest drag performers in this city over the last 20 years, such as Willie Taylor, Justine Tyme, and Diana Rose, to name a few. To say I’ve lived most of my life on stage would even be an understatement.

On a personal note, this show has been my salvation in more ways than I can express and has led to many opportunities. I’ve also made some great friends and got the chance to work with some very creative and innovative designers, hairstylists, and DJs. When producing a weekly show with so many different elements it really does take a village. I’m so incredibly thankful to the exceptional staff and management at the Junction for allowing me to do this. And of course, this show wouldn’t be happening if it weren’t for the fans that keep coming every week. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. As an artist and performer I’m always looking for ways to outdo myself and be the best that I can be, and Absolutely Dragulous has given me the vehicle to do just that. Until next month, you beautiful people, be kind, be loving, and most importantly, be fashionable. Love you all.
