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.
