“Canada’s Drag Heals actually is drag’s best friend race. The show, which was created by Tracey Erin Smith and heads into its second season on OutTV, Amazon and Apple TV on October 2, features no eliminations and an abundance of group hugs. The cast is an inclusive mix of backgrounds, ages and genders. And the show provides a blueprint for how to correct problematic behaviour without cancelling anyone. Drag Heals Is the Queer Representation We Need On TV.”
