About Rita Baga

Rita Baga, personified by Jean-François Guevremont, is a drag artist repeatedly proclaimed queen of Montreal! Star of the stage and a character now prominent on our television screens, Rita Baga shakes up conventions and makes people identifying with 2SLGBTQ+ communities shine.

In 2019, Rita Baga was selected from over 1,000 applicants to compete on Canada’s Drag Race, the highly anticipated first Canadian edition of the RuPaul’s Drag Race franchise. Thanks to her dazzling performances, breathtaking outfits, and endearing and accessible personality, she earned a place in the series finale, watched in more than 162 countries around the world.

She continues to be part of the Drag Race franchise as host and main judge of Drag Race Belgium, the second season of which aired in early 2024.

Rita was the first drag in the world to appear on the cover of Elle magazine and to partner with the L’Oréal makeup brand. She has also been named the best drag queen and favourite television personality of Quebecers by Cult magazine twice.

In the fall of 2023, Rita published the book One Sequin at a Time (Diary of a Queen), in which she recounted her atypical life, the rise of his notoriety, and the surprising underside of the drag profession. She also appeared on the Canadian edition of The Masked Singer, making it to the finale. Rita is currently working on her first album.
