YOU BETCHA IRIS is a bilingual printed zine that profiles one Tiohtià:ke/Montreal-based drag performer per issue. Leaving the YBI3 interview spot up to the interviewee, editor Clara spoke with Montreal's Panty Whisperer, Nat King Pole, at a café inside a luxury dog hotel. Nathalie Théoret, the woman behind the drag, opened up about starting her vaudevillian performance career at age forty after retiring from hockey, drawing inspiration from her day job as an orderly, and feeling out of place in today's glam-focused drag scene. Photographer Aok Palad captured The Pole Man at home reading Playboy, manspreading, and getting enraged while watching hockey. Standout quotes from the interview have been turned into tactile illustrations that pull influence from the '70s wave patterns, old family photos, and vintage movie posters around Nat's apartment. This issue was produced with generous support from Emploi Quebec's Young Volunteers program.

YOU BETCHA IRIS is a bilingual printed zine that profiles one Tiohtià:ke/Montreal-based drag performer per issue. For our second issue, editor Clara met up with Lizzy Strange at a café in Montreal's Hochelaga neighbourhood to learn about the Hamilton-born performer's beginnings in drag, their experience as an AFAB artist with a "feminine"-presenting drag persona, the projects they've co-produced since arriving in Quebec, and the influences behind their drag. Photographer Aok Palad conducted two incredible shoots with Lizzyone at the famous Café Cleopatra during House of Laureen's MX. QUEERDO pageant, and one in and around the artist's home. Clara and designer Rae Congdon created accompanying tactile illustrations in a variety of media. This issue was produced with generous support from Emploi Quebec's Young Volunteers program.

YOU BETCHA IRIS is a bilingual printed zine that profiles one Tiohtià:ke/Montreal-based drag performer per issue. Our inaugural issue features Latinx powerhouse Anaconda LaSabrosa, who was interviewed by editor Clara backstage at Café Cleopatra during Nuit SPASM 2018. She spoke about her creative process, being Montreal’s Divine, mistakenly thinking you look sickening when you first start out, and the realities of building a drag career while studying and working a day job. She also reacts throughout the interview to interjections from House of Laureen drag family members Uma Gahd and Noah Gahd. Photographer Aok Palad was backstage that same night capturing beautiful images of Anaconda, Uma and Rita Baga as they prepared for the show. Clara and designer Rae Congdon created the accompanying graphics and illustrated pull quotes using a variety of tactile media. This issue was produced with generous support from Emploi Quebec's Young Volunteers program.
