Honey Davenport, famous for appearing in season 11 of RuPaul’s Drag Race, will perform for the Haus of Blackstar for Black Pride during the Cairns Pride Festival.
This will be the first Cairns performance of any RuPaul’s Drag Race alumni.
Formerly a well-known and successful pageant queen, after her appearance on RuPaul’s Drag Race, Honey Davenport gained immense respect for her advocacy. She told Entertainment Weekly, “I like to use my drag as a platform for the voiceless; for women, people of color, and those who aren’t being heard.”
As a former Miss’d America pageant winner, she protested against the decision of the organiser’s decision to ban trans women from competing.
She also quit her residency at the popular Monster Bar over the racism she saw practiced there.
2019 is a great year for Honey with her new EP out, appearances in various music videos and a co-starring role in the upcoming feature film God Save the Queens.
Honey’s determination certainly paid off. Just a few years ago, she was homeless when the invitation arrived to compete in RuPaul’s Drag Race.
