Canadian drag performers continue to do absolutely incredible things on stages and in communities across this country, driving their art form into new directions and setting a sickening standard for the rest of the world. And that's why Canada's a Drag is back with a bigger, longer and occasionally untucked second season showcasing 13 queens and kings from coast to coast.

You can watch the entire season right here, right now. The series — which is continued from last year's nine-episode first season — brings our total to 22 performers from 11 different Canadian cities. We know all too well there are dozens and dozens of worthy kings and queens we haven't gotten to yet, as well as many communities. Give us time! And for now, enjoy this next batch, which comes via the work of series producers Mercedes Grundy and Peter Knegt, who worked alongside a tremendously talented group of filmmakers from all across the country to make this season come together: Josephine Anderson (Vancouver), Taryn Anderson (Winnipeg), Trevor Anderson (Toronto/Calgary), Kelly Conlin (Victoria), Lucius Dechausay (Toronto), Ashley Duong (Montreal), Istoica (Toronto), Jordan Molaro (Winnipeg), Lian Morrison (St. John's), Steven Roste (Kelowna) and Jennifer Roworth (Vancouver).

It's thanks to them — and a whole lot of fabulous folks who worked with them — that you're about to be taken on an eleganza extravaganza through the true North strong and fierce.
