A Philadelphia drag performer beloved by the local LGBTQ community died Monday night during a performance at a popular gay bar. 

Valencia Prime, 25, was performing at Tabu Lounge and Sports bar, in the heart of Philadelphia's Gayborhood, when she collapsed on stage.

Candidate on Drag Race UK season 2 Cherry Valentine has died age 28. RIP… 

Upvote for correct thread.

 

With all the 50000 seasons of the show, and drag getting more and more mainstream, I wonder if this "industry" is going to attract the same degree of unstable looking-for-the-quickest-way-to-get-famous people like other deadpooling friendly shows like survivor.

As I said before, until now, the fatality rate has been much lower than one might think.

I think Cherry is just the 3rd "RuGirl" to die.

Traditionally drag queens operates in "Houses" (Hauses, whatever), so there was always a support network around them. With the drag explosion we're getting more "Instaqueens", who barely perform live and operate mainly on their own and online. Definitely signals a sea change.
