Kennedy Davenport needs your help

KennedyDavenport-edWhen we interviewed Drag Race contestant and local drag diva Kennedy Davenport earlier this year, we talked about how she was still living in the same Oak Cliff home where she grew up. But recently, that situation was called into question. Following the death of her father, Kennedy continued to pay the mortgage, but now the mortgage company has called in a balloon payment of $33,000 due around Dec. 15. So Kennedy has started a GoFundMe page asking for fans’ support in raising the money so that she and four other family members can stay in their home. After less than a week, Kennedy has already raised approximately half of the money (impressively, from about 550 donations), but there’s still a way to go. Click on the link if you want to help out.

“Drag Race” casting all-stars — and you can vote

Some former Drag Racers, on a visit to Dallas in 2010.

Despite the recent announcement that Logo no longer considers itself a “gay network,” its tentpole series, RuPaul’s Drag Race, continues to perform … so well, in fact, that the fifth season will be a six-episode “all-star” arc, with returning queens competing to be “America’s next drag superstar.” The line-up will be announced on the network’s NewNowNext site, but until then, you can vote by “like”ing the series’ Facebook page and casting your ballot.

Among those in contention are Pandora Boxx, Jessica Wild and Tatianna, pictured above, as well as Dallas-tied Mystique and Sahara Davenport. You can vote every 24 hours, so go often.
