Antoine Ashley, aka drag star Sahara Davenport, has died.

Sahara was a beautiful, high-kicking whirlwind of energy and humor and glamour, as seen on RuPaul's Drag Race and in clubs all around NYC.

I am deeply saddened--as is everyone who knew Sahara--and I will report more as information and verbal bouquets come in.

Much love to Sahara's special one, the beauteous Manila Luzon.

Update: All they'll officially say is she died of heart failure. Doesn't everybody?

 

But heart failure at 27? Sad.
