Former Rupaul's Drag Race contestant Sahara Davenport passes away

“RuPaul’s Drag Race” Star Sahara Davenport Passes Away



Various sources are reporting Sahara Davenport, one of the more popular contestants on Season 2 of RuPaul’s Drag Race—and partner to fellow Drag Race entrant Manila Luzon—has passed away at age 28.

As Antoine Ashley, Davenport was born and raised in Dallas and attended Southern Methodist University, where he earned a BFA in dance. After moving to New York, Davenport scored appearances in One Life to Live, Judge Karen and the video for David Guetta and Chris Willis’ “Gettin’ Over.”

In addition to a successful performance career, Davenport released two singles: “Pump with Me” (2010) and “Go Off” (2011).

Though details have yet to emerge about Davenport’s passing, Drag Race judge Michelle Visage confirmed the death via Twitter: “It’s true and I have no words. Have to sign off for now kids, can’t handle this. XOXO.”
Other Drag Race performers took to social media to extend their condolences: “A beautiful angel has been added to Heaven. Rest in peace my sweet friend,” tweeted Jujubee. “We will miss you, Sahara Davenport.” While Season One winner Bebe Zehara wrote, “I am deeply saddened and at a lost for words. @SaharaDavenport – I Love you sis.”

Luzon tweeted simply, “I love him so much. “

Poor Manila. cry

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

met him out of drag once (after he had competed) along with manilla (before he had competed), through a mutual friend. both were very unassuming, sweet, and down to earth guys, and you could feel their intense love for one another. my heart breaks for both.

RIP rose . 28 is too damn young, so I'm sure people will speculate the cause. Hope his partner can carry on.
