We were saddened to learn Sunday that longtime drag entertainer Greg Smith, aka Shegotta Mustache, passed away on Sunday. At this time, we’ve only heard that Smith had cancer and succumbed to the disease this weekend.
Over the years, Smith made quite the comic impression on the Dallas scene and was involved with many organizations, including DIVA and Texas Bear Round-Up.
According to his alter ego’s Facebook page, Smith posted this under Basic Information:
“Love making people laugh with the songs that I do and coming up with creative ways of making a song stand out and be funny.”
We will post more information as it is reported and confirmed.
UPDATE: We received the following information regarding Smith’s funeral services.
Wake at Gregory W. Spencer Funeral Home, 4000 Miller Ave., Fort Worth. Nov. 4 at 8:30 p.m.
