Top Five Most Shocking Sharon Needles Moments of All Time

Categories: Arts, Lists

Sharon Needles is the avant-garde drag queen who won season four of RuPaul's Drag Race.

A queen is taking over Ft. Laudy.

The self-proclaimed "stupid genius, reviled sweetheart, and PBR princess," AKA Sharon Needles, will captivate the Manor in Wilton Manors in all her ghoulish, drag glory on Saturday.

But before the ostentatious winner of RuPaul's Drag Race season 4 "takes a poop on your new Armani suit" (more on that later), here are five bold moments from the queer empress.

5. Her "It Gets Better" PSA
"I'm thirty years old, I'm rich, and I'm famous, and I still get called a faggot every single goddamn day," Sharon concedes in a message to her fellow gays. As part of the It Gets Better Project, an initiative to help young people rise above harassment, the figure asks victims to channel bigotry into self-assurance. She says homosexuals can be anything they want to be -- thinkers, artists, and even short order cooks. And there's a real tearjerker at 0:36 when she pauses in recollection of the strife she's seen in the gay community. "Take all that pain that you get every single day. Take every time that you are called a faggot and turn it into something that makes you a stronger person," Sharon says.

Condragulations Ms. Needles, you are one fierce role model.
