With flaming red hair, eye shadow up to his eyebrows and sass to rival RuPaul's, eight-year-old Lactatia has become a celebrity among the LGBT community and beyond.

Footage of Lactatia voguing and spouting advice for fellow drag dreamers who may not be supported in their dress-up endeavours has gone viral.

"Anyone can do what they want in life," the Montreal local told LGBT in the City. "It doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. If you want to be a drag queen and your parents don't let you, you need new parents. If you want to be a drag queen and your friends don't let you, you need new friends."

Fortunately for Lactatia, whose interest in drag began at the age of seven, his parents are in complete support of their son's decision: His mum helps him with his makeup and takes him to voguing classes and his sister came up with his name.

Born Nemis Quinn Mélançon Golden, Lactatia reveals he's been wearing dresses "and been into girls' stuff since I was like three."

Attending the Montreal stop off of the Werq the World tour, the young queen caught the attention of Bianca del Rio, the star of "RuPaul's Drag Race".

Invited on stage, Lactatia reportedly "charmed the dress off" del Rio.
