As a young figure skater, Shauna Fay had a crush on Canadian figure skating champion Kurt Browning. Decades later, when she discovered a passion for performing drag, she looked to her childhood idol for inspiration, and her drag persona Skirt Browning was born.
When Shauna learned that Kurt Browning would be in her hometown of Winnipeg for Stars on Ice earlier this year, she decided that she wanted him and Skirt Browning to meet. So dressed in full drag, she went to the show to find the man who first inspired her to be in the spotlight.
In that encounter, Kurt imparted words of wisdom that Shauna says she still carries with her every time she steps on stage.
