Philly drag queen Valencia Prime, 25, collapses and dies while onstage
A drag queen in Philadelphia passed away while she was performing, and her family got a lot of support.
When Valencia Prime passed out on stage on September 12, she was only 25 years old, but she was a regular on the Philly drag scene.
Prime called herself "Philadelphia's Plus Size Dancing Diva" and said she was a trans woman. She was performing at the Center City nightclub
Tabu and hosting her own live show, "Prime Time," when a terrible thing happened. The venue wrote on Instagram, "We mourn the loss of a
very bright and rising star in the performance world and a person who was always full of life and positivity." "We will miss the light that
Valencia Prime brought to the stage," they said. A friend of Prime wrote on Facebook, "She was a bright and beautiful star,
and everyone who met her felt her selflessness and kindness. I'm sad about my friend's death, but I'm also sad about what the gay community has lost.
