Society may see it as a drag, but to me it’s just fun,” says Arcand. For STAR, she began dressing in drag on Halloween, and has been playing with various looks since she was 16 years old. She started watching RuPaul’s Drag Race in 2016 and was inspired to explore the world of makeup. She would dress up as iconic female characters for Halloween, including characters from American Horror Story, Stranger Things, Clueless, Mean Girls, Scream Queens, Heathers, and more. In February 2019, Arcand organized a special event titled “Drag At the AB,” co-hosting the event with his drag sister, Aurora Matrix. The goal was to showcase other queer talent from Winters, and soon both Talented and Matrix jumped at the chance to have STAR to perform with them.

When I asked the queens what they love most about being a drag queen, I was met with unique and heartfelt answers. Arcand has found that some of his favourite things about being a drag artist is that he doesn’t need to conform to any standards of gender or beauty. Drag is an art form that knows no bounds and is consistently flipping the gender binary on its head. “It’s a performance of gender that simultaneously critiques and pushes its very limitations,” Arcand remarks. “Each year on March 31, the world observes Transgender Day of Visibility to raise awareness about transgender people.

Overall demand for our main products and solutions is strong and we expect this to continue. Consumer demand for charitable gaming, eGaming systems and instant ticket products sold at retail have remained high throughout 2022.

Was primarily a result of inflationary pressures on raw material costs, increases in certain manufacturing overhead costs and higher exchange rates on U.S. dollar denominated expenses in 2022. Partially offsetting these increases were decreases in ancillary lottery products and services sales, and charitable gaming sales volumes as compared to 2021. ILottery sales and the impact of inflationary cost increases, partially offset by increases in eGaming systems, charitable gaming and digital product gross margins as compared to 2021. In cost of sales was primarily the result of inflationary pressures on raw material costs, increases in certain manufacturing overhead costs and higher exchange rates on U.S. dollar denominated expenses in 2022. Partially offsetting these increases were decreases in instant ticket and licensed product sales volumes as compared to the second quarter of 2021. We continue to make great strides with investing in our business through increasing our resources, expanding our product portfolio and investing in the technological solutions our lottery and charitable gaming customers require. We remain very excited about the strength of demand for our products and solutions, and are confident our strategies will allow us to improve our instant ticket margins. This, combined with strong results in many other areas of our business, will allow us to return to levels of profitability reflective of the value of our company. Inflationary increases, particularly as it relates to key instant ticket inputs, will continue to be a challenge. A significant portion of these cost increases have been implemented already in the first and second quarters of 2022; however, their full impact is still being absorbed in our results. We will continue to pursue this higher selling price strategy and are so far very encouraged at the acceptance by the market of this strategy in a number of jurisdictions. Higher selling prices are a critical component of recovering these significant cost increases and achieving appropriate gross margins.

The trio are great friends, both in and out of drag, and have continued to perform virtually over Zoom throughout the pandemic. As a trio, they’ve been able to host some incredible Drag Nights in collaboration with both the York Federation of Students and Winter’s College Council. Join us for a workshop about how gender & sexual violence affects 2SLGBTQIA+ communities in multiple ways. A 30-minute Sakai online module, and a 1-hour Teams Seminar to discuss what you’ve learned in Sakai, and engage in some experiential activities. We will listen to their journeys and after, the floor will be open for discussion and sharing of your experience as a domestic student or an international student. Open to all sexual and gender diverse identities aged 19+, living in Niagara. Brock Students can receive co-curricular credit in the CWC for attending this workshop. Please contact for more information and/ or accessibility requirements. Participants are invited to challenge their own biases, beliefs, and experiences to further understand the impact of colonization in the framework of our lives, ways of thinking and belief systems.
