A year ago today, I was on Twitter when I cam across a tweet that I thought was apart of the sickest practical joke ever. “RIP Sahara Davenport” people started tweeting. I thought for sure people were just joking until my drag sister Luna told me that it may not be a joke. I was in a panic with the rest of the world especially the drag community. Hours later, it was confirmed that Sahara Davenport passed away on October 1st, 2012. We had lost one of the greatest drag performers in the industry.
Sahara was such an inspiration and I take this day just as everyday, celebrating her life by continuing to follow my dreams and search for the things in life that keep my happy. My thoughts are with Sahara’s family, friends, and of course Manila.
I miss you so much our dancing queen.
