Best Drag Performer

Rouge Fatale

Rogue Fatale is only about five years old now, but is big for her age. Performer Jason Rose-Spurrell created her on a dare in Cape Breton in 2003. “My friends told me they’d buy me drinks for the rest of Pride if I put on this dress,” says Rose-Spurrell, who wound up winning Mz Gay Sydney. “I had a lot of fun. Looked horrible.” Rouge Fatale has made a big splash since her arrival in Halifax, performing at Reflections and, more recently, at Menz Bar. “I do a lot of comedy numbers and some impersonation,” including Mrs Stewart, “a 60-year-old bingo bag with a bad perm and camel toe from front to back.”

The price of everything has more or less gone up including heating oil which means staying warm this winter is going to cost you more. What are your ways to try to cut down on heating costs?
