Sahara Davenport, RIP
Antoine Ashley, aka drag star Sahara Davenport, has died.
Sahara was a beautiful, high-kicking whirlwind of energy and humor and glamour, as seen on RuPaul's Drag Race and in clubs all around NYC.
I am deeply saddened--as is everyone who knew Sahara--and I will report more as information and verbal bouquets come in.
Much love to Sahara's special one, the beauteous Manila Luzon.
