Kenya Michaels, who appeared on Season 4 of RuPaul's Drag Race, was one of the featured performers at gay nightclub Pulse in Orlando, which became the scene of the worst mass shooting in U.S. history.

She's related her emotional story on Instagram, where she wrote, in reference to a video of her last number before the shooting began:

How to forget that night. Just minutes before the shooting. My last performance to all my best friend that were in front row, now all of them are gone. My heart is broke. They took everything from me.

Michaels hid in the club during the shooting and later escaped. My heart breaks for her and all the others—the ones who escaped, the ones who didn't.

I've watched every season of RuPaul's Drag Race, I've done drag as Samantha Fox and I just co-wrote a book with none other than Alaska, so count me in when another RuPaul's Drag Race: Battle of the Seasons event hits NYC.

This past week's extravaganza was a blast! I was able to do the VIP meet-and-greet hour, where I shot all the girls—Manila Luzon, Miss Fame, Sharon Needles, Katya, Jinkx Monsoon, Violet Chachki, Adore Delano, Ginger Minj and Alaska herself—and then even managed to work my way backstage for some quality time with the low-lifes in high heels.

IMG_6278The merch available was incredible.

IMG_6348Alaska's necklace really got into the groove.

IMG_6291America knows good drag queens when they see them. Here, actual girls give drag a woman's touch.

IMG_6352Who killed Marilyn Monroe? Ask her! Sharon Needles serves old-time glamour.

IMG_6310Ginger Minj goes blonde. Does the carpet match the drapes? Honey, what about that curtain rod?

IMG_6331It takes two, it takes two ... Michelle Visage and friends

IMG_6362With so much feminine beauty around, I still couldn't help noticing the boy of anyone's dreams.

IMG_6423This one also would not have to sashay away.

Backstage was a hoot. Or a hooter.

Sharon was friendly as could be, and embracing a far less Goth look, one of which Eve Arden would approve.

How adorable! I attended Wednesday night's RuPaul's Drag Race Battle of the Seasons in NYC (many pictures and a full report coming) and the one piece of the show I filmed (seems more than fine since this was a one-time, non-content kinda thang) was Phi Phi O'Hara aka Jaremi Cary proposing!
