Do Your Thing in MTL: A Private Tour of Montreal by Mado Lamotte

Posted on July 16th, 2013 by .

Mado Lamotte is the star and owner of one of Montreal’s most prolific drag cabarets. For Do Your Thing in MTL, armed with her sharp tongue, cutting wit, and fabulous wig, she gives an exclusive tour of Montreal’s beautiful Old Port!
Mado Lamotte (the stage name of Luc Provost) started of as a cigarette girl at Le Lézard and Poodles back in the 80’s on Montreal’s Le Main club strip. In an amazing career spanning 26 years she sung and dragged her way to the throne of Montreal’s Gay Village. Not only does she helm the famous cabaret that bears her name, but is also responsible for Mascara, one of the world’s largest Drag Shows during Divers/Cité Festival.

The approximately 500 costumes, 75 wigs, 50 pairs of shoes, and 775 jewels gives Mado plenty of selection for the three-hour Mascara spectacular happening Saturday, August 3rd at 8PM. In the interview video above she talks about the sexy ambiance of Montreal, the incredible drag talent we have (over 100+ featured in Mascara) and why Montreal is North America’s best kept secret.


From our fabulous Gay Village to our multiple LGBT festivals, Montreal is one of the most gay-friendly places on Earth, and we take pride in celebrating our queerness.
