VIDEO: AOC Gushes After Attending Drag Queen Theatre Show in DC

AOC and drag queen performer Sasha Velour, winner of “RuPaul’s Drag Race”  gushed over each other after the freshman lawmaker attended Velour’s “Smoke and Mirrors” theatre show in Washington D.C.

Per Out, on Monday, Ocasio-Cortez attended the Washington, D.C. performance of Sasha Velour’s theater show Smoke & Mirrors and the two had the chance to meet backstage. They shot a quick video together in which the representative gushed about the show, invoking ARTPOP denier Lady Gaga in her effusive review.

“I thought it was amazing, it was incredible, it was fabulous,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “I’m like that Lady Gaga moment where she’s like, ‘stunning, amazing, impeccable, genius.’” A queen who knows her herstory — we will never unstan!

Velour was similarly shook, calling AOC “the revolutionary of our time.” According to Velour’s tweet, the Smoke & Mirrors audience even gave the representative a standing ovation.

Velour shared a video of the two together, writing:

Tonight THE most honored special guest came to see “Smoke & Mirrors” in Washington D.C. @AOC
The audience gave her a standing ovation too!

Velour added in a follow-up tweet “You are truly an inspiration @AOC. Thank you for all you do to support our queer family. What a brilliant human, I’m still overwhelmed from this meeting!”

AOC wrote back “You were incredible, !”

As described by Build Series, “Smoke & Mirrors,” Sasha Velour’s first one-queen show, is an effortless blend of drag, visual art, and magic. Velour introduces audiences to a whole new side of her artistry, through 13 dazzling and genre-busting lip-synch performances, all directed and choreographed by the queen herself.
