Julian talks about their experience as a young, queer, gender queer, new comer to Canada who has a disability. Having already faced a multitude of challenges, Julian manages to find the stamina and motivation to perform their drag queen characters in the hope of inspiring others to find their own self-worth and confidence. You can find ‘Lady Boy Sparkle’ on Youtube or Twitter.
