Vancouver drag performers want you to know how to save a life.

Members of the city’s drag community gathered at a St. John Ambulance session for opioid overdose response training and they are encouraging others to do the same.

“We want people to know that four people a day are dying here in BC,” said drag queen Gloria Hole.

“We want you to know that you can get your lifesaving training at St. John Ambulance so you can get out and save a life.”
