Sahara Davenport

Before becoming part of New York City's LGBT scene and a contestant on season two of  RuPaul's Drag Race, Davenport was a classically-trained dancer who studied at Southern Methodist University. A fixture on television, the stage and the art scene, Davenport was one of the most versatile artists to use drag in his toolbox. He sadly died from heart failure in 2012, at just 27.
