'Pittsburgh is the Hollywood of Southwestern Pennsylvania'
June 12 is now officially Sharon Needles Day in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that the recent winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 4 was given her own day because of her fearlessness as an artist and her speaking out for bullied queer youth. Needles herself commented, “A win for Sharon Needles is a win for every single kid in this city who's still being bullied.”
In celebration of the event, Needles performed The Rocky Horror Picture Show’s “Sweet Transvestite” in front of city hall, although she changed it to “Cheap Transvestite from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania” and made the lyrics a little more Steel City. In other news, Sharon Needles is the best.
Now the question that begs to be asked: Is there a Phi Phi O’Hara Day?
