“Two in a row? Let’s go for 10,” says Chris Cochrane—the performer behind Elle Noir—about her win. The only out, trans, Black drag queen this side of Montreal had a busy 2019, including serving as the Pride Ambassador and undergoing sexual reassignment surgery. “I’m used to being in competition, it’s what I do,” Cochrane says. “But I think in the last year I’ve been very public, so to get that feedback is wonderful.” While she’s been spending more time educating these days versus performing—“When Elle goes out now, she has to be perfect—and it costs a lot of money to be perfect”—she’s incredibly proud and grateful.
