It has been reported by NEWNOWNEXT.com that RuPaul‘s Drag Race star, Sahara Davenport, has passed away. She was only 27. As of now, cause of death is unknown. (EDIT: Cause of death was heart failure.)
Also known by her birth name, Antoine Ashley, she was a contestant on the 2nd season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, in addition to being a triple threat & significant other of fellow RDR contestant & drag queen, Manila Luzon. You can read her full biography HERE. Its worth a read. She was a true talent, taken waaay too early in life.
The World didn’t have a chance to really get to know the wonder and talent that she was. Only her mate and friends were blessed enough to have known that personally.
The LGR staff are saddened to hear of this and send our deepest condolences to her mate, Manila, and to her family and friends in their time of loss.
