When Sasha Velour bled a cascade of rose petals from her head during the final performance on season nine of RuPaul’s Drag Race, you knew she was going to sahay away with the crown.

Since her win, she’s been touring and putting all her energy into her one queen show “Smoke and Mirrors” where she blends drag, visual art, projection, impossible costumes and magic into an unstoppable tour de force.

    Universal healthcare yes. Medicare for all no. Abortions can’t be paid for with public money now. I don’t see that changing. Has anyone addressed this? I don’t think anyone should be so sanguine about medicare for all until this issue is settled.
