Miss Butterfly Drag Show | A life changing experience

23 February 2021 By Blue Chairs Resort by the Sea
“Drags started the whole thing. Back in Stonewall, it was a drag queen that stood up and defended the whole LGTB + Community. It took a fucking drag queen to stand up and yell “We have the right”.”

This is a first row seat level act where her personality will rise the show, no high stage is needed. A cozy cabaret is getting ready for another Puerto Vallarta drag show, a show that for sure is like no other.

This 2020 represents different decades, a year of parties, the year to pull out the best attires to highlight the second decade of drag with 20 particular clothing changes. After all, this is “her party”. 

The story of a Drag Queen, a fortunate circumstance
By accident, Miss Butterfly’s career started 20 years ago in Montreal thanks to her best friend. 

“One of my friends was studying to be a makeup artist in Montreal at College La Salle, and he needed a model to transform a man into a woman. He’s my best friend so I went up to the studio, he transformed me and I looked pretty good! So the following week we both decided we should dress up in Drag and go out to party in the clubs of Montreal. He did my makeup and then changed his mind so I went out by myself to party. I was dancing and having fun and at one point the manager of one of the clubs came up to me and said: “OMG! You’re so good, you’re so energetic, would you come and perform next week? I will pay you.” I was like “What? You will pay me for this? Are you kidding me? Ok, I’ll come, I’ll try it.” And this is how I started… One gig led to another.”

Her name, “Mis Butterfly”, has followed her from the beginning of her career 20 years ago. Since the start she knew what she wanted to represent and it has stuck for all this time.

“When I first started doing drag, I didn’t want people to put me in a category and this is how I came up with the name. A day butterfly can be very colorful, every color is possible, but they can also be very dark, like a moth, a night butterfly. When you see one fly, it’s impossible to tell if it is a male or female, and this is what I want to provoque. 
I also believe the evolution of a butterfly is quite unique: starts as an egg, then a caterpillar, a cocoon, and then the expansion. All this is really involved in my life with who I am myself and I represent that in my show with a lot of small changes, it’s like I’m coming out of a cocoon everytime.”

20 years of delivering a message of love
Miss Butterfly celebrates the decades of her life, in a year that lined up for multiple celebrations. Born in Lebanon, he moved at age 10 to Montreal, where he has lived for 30 years, in 2020 he celebrates 20 years of career as a drag queen, in addition to his 40th birthday. In addition to 10 years since the first time to represent his drag show Puerto Vallarta, in Blue Chairs Resort By The Sea the hotel for the LGBT + community. 

During these 20 years of career, Miss Butterfly's biggest goal has been to bring a message of respect and love to her attendees.

"I gained a lot of confidence in 20 years of drag, I make a lot of people happy, and I like it a lot. And you know, positive attitude, good vibes, I think it's very important. It's a way to allow me to be even more spreader of love, spread positive energy and respect, everything is possible in life. Especially because of where I come from, coming from Lebanon, where it's illegal to be gay or lesbian, wherever.... The LGBT+ community is very hidden you know? So I think by doing Drag I help other people to believe in themselves and to be positive, and I think I give a good message by doing that."

Drag Show Puerto Vallarta, 10 years of changing stereotypes
During 10 of the 20 years of Miss Butterfly's career, she has come down from Canada to Puerto Vallarta to present her show, where she has only missed a couple of years. She has returned to our city as a second home to present a different show every year, but with a permanent message: the vindication of the LGTB+ community.

" have a message behind that work. I don't do it just to do it, I do it to entertain, I do it to educate, I do it to provoke, I do it to impress. So it's a job, but it's not like any normal job. It's a job that's going to make a change in everybody's life. You have to walk away with something because in my job I have to change people's lives; every time I go on stage I have to change people's lives. And bitch, of course I do! Every time people love it, they laugh about it, and if I don't please everybody... fuck it, it's not my problem. You can't please everyone. Some people are really offended, and some people are offended before, but when they see a drag queen show, they say, Oh! There are different kinds of drag queens."

With shows every Sunday and Tuesday, Miss Butterfly is waiting to surprise you with her costume changes, song performances and a host of surprises that you can't miss at the Miss Butterfly Cabaret Drag Show Puerto Vallarta at Blue Chairs Resort By The Sea. We assure you that you will have a great time.

"I understand why some people think drag performers are all the same. But that's their opinion. If you don't open your horizon, and you don't see many drag shows, then where do your statistics come from? If you see a drag in your life, and she was like bad, bitchy, bad influence or negative. And you think they're all the same, I don't think that's normal. You have to discover other drags and then decide whether you normalize it or not."
