Empress VI of Halifax October 22, 2005 -- August 2, 2006
Who can forget such performances as the Natalie/Nat "King" Cole duet of "Unforgettable" done entirely by Nina? Truly fantastic.
Nina says: I first started doing drag in February, 1989. At that time there were only a handful of people doing Drag: Iris, Lili Champagne, Sugar, Sweet Seduction (now known as DivaDq), JennyBlake, DagneyMarie, MzAdrien, and GaryWest. I'm sure there were others, but those are the ones that stick out. At that time, drag was not as popular as it is today and a great many times a drag queen was snubbed by the greater gay community. I never came into my own genre until I applied comedic twists to my performances. If there is someone out there who fancies a good old fashioned drag show you may recall my performance of "This is My Life" by Shirley Bassey or "Shy" by Sarah Jessica Parker. Other Queens who made a difference were TatyanaRomanov, CheriseDq, StudioXleNoir (then Destiny), MadisonNorth, MissVicki, MeshallayCrystal & LuLuLaRude. I applaud any person who does drag as long as they do it for the right reason: to make a difference.

Nina! After our numbers together at Rumours, how could you not remember me? Or 'Midnight Girls'? Your electric broom? Ring any bells?
