The untimely death of 27-year-old amazingly talented Drag performer/dancer Antoine Ashley aka Sahara Davenport has left the entire community speechless. Sahara was not only a talented queen, but an amazing partner to Manila Luzon and more importantly, one of the kindest human beings I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I didn’t get to spend as much time as I would have liked with her, but the time we did spend was pure love. I am deeply, truly saddened by her death and send Manila all of my love, strength and support. Sahara baby, you twirl, sashay, pop, dip AND spin all the way to those pearly gates. You left your mark, I only wish it wasn’t now. I LOVE YOU baby, kiss my mama for me?? She will take care of you. - Michelle Visage
Each one of us has lived through some devastation, some loneliness, some weather superstorm or spiritual superstorm, when we look at each other we must say, I understand. I understand how you feel because I have been there myself. We must support each other and empathize with each other because each of us is more alike than we are unalike.
