Remembering Sahara: RuPaul and Drag Racers Share Memories

Draq queen Sahara Davenport came into this world as Antoine Ashley and left it too soon. The Drag Race contestant died earlier this month, and RuPaul plus fellow contestants shared fond memories during the All Stars premiere party.



Manila is a very dear friend of mine, and Sahara’s other half. And I didn’t get to know Sahara much. But the times I’ve got to know her, she’s been nothing but the most beautiful human being, and it’s devastating. I know that she’s looking down on Manila. She’s lived a full life — it should have been longer. Especially someone so young, it doesn’t seem right. I am a mother, and when I think about my children.… Antoine is somebody’s child. A child should never die before a parent, so it breaks my heart. But I’m grateful that the world got to know Sahara.
