Viewing of Rupaul's Drag Race Season 9 in Toronto is essential and is the most enjoyable with groups of friends (and strangers) along with a few drinks. Whether it's in a pub hosted by drag queens, in a gay sports bar or on a carefully selected couch with the fortunate few that can enjoy from home... the time has come! For you watch the new season and get your life!
