The Reality of Life On Skid Row and RuPaul's Sasha Velour

2 months ago|581 views
Gangs have made Skid Row a truce area so they can sell drugs collectively. On tonight's episode of Mic Dispatch, Yoonj Kim takes a turn down this gang-run community to understand the dangers and challenges that homeless people face in downtown Los Angeles. Then, Mic's Evan Ross Katz sits down with Sasha Velour, the winner of season nine of RuPaul's Drag Race. Velour puts on a monthly drag show in Brooklyn, New York, that celebrates queer diversity. “My goal is to co-opt the privilege that I have and use it as a tool for changing the system... [to shift] the whole nature of our community so that it is safe and uplifting.”
