Georges Laraque thinks it’s dumb to be homophobic, and he put his money where his mouth is recently donning drag and lip-synching to one of the greatest divas of all time.

Laraque, who was an enforcer for the Edmonton Oilers, won a Montreal Pride drag contest on August 10 by performing Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” in a $1,500 wedding dress. (Unable to find heels that fit his size 14 feet, Laraque wore sandals.) With styling and makeup help from local drag star Miss Butterfly, Laraque wnabbed the contest’s $1,000 prize, which he promptly donated back to Montreal Pride.

“Here is my drag queen look at last night’s [Montreal Pride party] that I won thanks to Miss Butterfly’s great work!” he posted on Instagram “In 2018, it is inconceivable that we must all fight against homophobia again. And personally it’s with pleasure that I join this cause!”
