Jada Hudson

Born and raised on the beautiful island of Barbados, Ms. Jada Shada Hudson is no stranger to the arts. While living in Barbados, Jada was heavily involved in theatre, performing professionally at the national level with Barbados’ leading dance troupe. When Jada immigrated to Canada, she continued to express her love for the arts and theatre in the form of drag. For the past 8 years Jada has been no stranger to Toronto’s drag scene, having “residency performances” nightly in almost every gay bar and night club in downtown Toronto. Jada’s high energy, dance filled performances, which have resonated with her audiences has gained her the title of #Toronto’sTurnupQueen and has also garnered her a fan base who refer to themselves as “The Hudson Dollz.” Jada’s reputation has not gone unnoticed across Canada as she has been asked to perform at practically all Pride Celebrations here in Canada.
