Carmen Carrera shakes up Montreal’s gay village with pop-up burlesque show

Carmen Carrera takes centre stage in the heart of Montreal’s gay village for a pop-up burlesque show. Queer MTL

Carmen Carrera was one of the first contestants from RuPaul's Drag Race to come out as transgender, and when Carrera took centre stage recently in the heart of Montreal's gay village, all eyes were on her. 

In a pop-up burlesque show, Carmen was helped out of her shell by a few beautiful girls from local troupe Speakeasy Burlesque and "discovered the beautiful woman she was born to be!"

Carrera’s performance and video interview are part of Do Your Thing in MTL, a new video series by Queer MTL that celebrates some of the best LGBT talents in North America by having them visit Montreal and “use the city as their stage.”
