BOA, also known as Bitch On Arrival, is a Canadian drag performer and one of the Season 1 contestants of Canada's Drag Race.

In June 2024, BOA was announced as one of the cast members of Slaycation.[3]

Drag Name Origin[]

"I found it really difficult, actually, to figure out a drag name. When I was in high school, people started calling me by my last name which is "Boa" and I didn't like it at the time. My principal even started calling me "Boa" which was really weird. So when I started doing drag I decided to use it as my drag name because everyone knew me as Boa anyways. [4]

BOA is also an acronym for "Bitch On Arrival".

Farewell Message[]



  • BOA started doing drag around 2014, when the no makeup selfie challenge went viral: "I was challenged by someone who I considered a "frenemy" so I wanted to a lot better job than them. So I watched a Willam Belli tutorial and used my mom's makeup to do it. This was literally about a year ago. It all started from that...I started playing around with makeup and realized I was a pretty ass bitch and here I am". [5]
