Halal Bae is of Egyptian/Palestinian descent and moved to Toronto at 18 to pursue an openly queer life
Halal’s connection to her North African/ Middle Eastern Muslim background is heavily infused into her drag, and she’s proud of how she uses her roots to represent a side of queer identity that is often overlooked and oppressed
She has been involved in a number of events including fundraisers for HIV awareness and queer immigrant initiatives
“Halal represents the intersectionality that shapes great cities across this country, that is often overlooked and marginalized, creating a space for and adding to a larger conversation about who can do drag and hopefully changing some minds along the way.”
