What's Your Story? Miss Canada World


Have you ever wanted to approach someone because their face or style has left you wondering what they were all about but you were too afraid to ask?

What's Your Story? features the different characters that roam the streets of Toronto. Every Monday and Thursday, a new person shares their story, likes and dislikes about the city, a little secret and more.

Name: Kenya Black Duprey

Age: 31

What neighbourhood are you from? Atlanta, Georgia

What do you 'do'? Model/female entertainer/makeup artist. Stunning beauty - that's a full time job!

How long have you been in Toronto? 1 week

What's your story?

I work at a show club in Atlanta and a girl that works there told me there was a pageant in Toronto so I came down. I entered and won Miss Canada World, part of Drag Ball Toronto (the other contestant dropped out). Some of the different categories we were tested on were swimwear, evening gown and an interview. I travel all over the world entertaining and I also dance at a topless club.

Favorite thing(s) about Toronto:

I have this thing about interracial dating - I don't approve of it back home - but here, I can appreciate it. I love everything about Toronto. I love the clothes here because I know no one else in Atlanta will have anything I have.

Least favorite thing(s) about Toronto:

The prices of cigarettes. Everything is so expensive and people don't tip at the shows.

You have 24 hours to spend with someone who's never been to Toronto before - what do you do?

Shopping first and then, up Queen Street because there are a lot of good restaurants. We'd also go to the needle (CN Tower).

One thing that your friends/family don't know about you:

I have a lot of insecurities.
