Best of Halifax

Best Drag King

Ben Dover

Your landslide choice, Ben Dover says he always has a blast during his performances. “It’s neat when you’re out on stage and you see the audience kind of wondering,” he says. “If you do a good job, they’re not always exactly sure what’s up there, so they let go of their gender expectations and get into the performance itself. It’s fun to make gender irrelevant for five minutes.” A rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” is his fave. “It took me three months to learn the dance. It was incredible.”

1st runner-up: Mr. Badass

2nd runner-up: Kris Lee
