Once again, Fernie’s most fabulous Drag Queens and Kings hit the slopes to shine a rhinestoned spotlight on suicide in the Elk Valley. Last year, with the support of the Fernie Alpine Resort and Fernie PRIDE, our Drag Stars raised over $10,000 for the Elk Valley Suicide Task Force to create a Grief Support for friends and families dealing in the wake of suicide.
