Best of Halifax

Best Halifamous Person

Gold Winner Rouge Fatale

Silver Winner Brett Ruskin

Bronze Winner Allie and Sam

Jason Spurrell can’t believe it when he gets the call that his drag persona, Rouge Fatale (who was sent to the Best of Halifax Hall of Fame after winning 10 consecutive Best Drag Performer awards) won Best Halifamous Person. “Ellen Page herself has won this award,” he says. “When I first got the email, I honestly thought I’d won Best Character after that damn agave plant [beat me last year]. I’ve become fond of tequila because it’s the blood of my enemy,” he adds in total deadpan, before switching back to earnest: “To be the fist gender-fluid or gender-non-conforming or drag persona to be out in this category, this is big for me: Just to know that our drag worth is that important.”
