About Gila Münster

Since 2019, Gila has performed on and off stages, bringing drag into unconventional venues such as libraries, schools, community centres, lecture halls, unions, workplaces, retirement homes, hospitals, and more. Gila is the first drag performer approved as a vendor and partner for the Toronto District School Board, and has been the preferred “Drag Queen Story Time” partner of the Toronto Public Library since 2022, including marching with them in the Toronto Pride Parade to protest censorship in front of 2.4 million spectators. Gila is the recipient of the 2023 Mayworks Festival of Working People and the Arts Creative Maverick Award for her work in using arts to promote the working people. Gila is also the founder and host of the annual “8 Gays of Channukah Queer Jewish Variety Show,” the biggest event in the queer Jewish calendar in Toronto, raising funds for Machane Lev (queer Jewish summer camp) while showcasing queer Jewish artists. Outside of drag, Gila is a J.D. candidate at Queens University in Kingston, Ontario, and enjoys spending her (admittedly short) free time stitching and napping.
