In the video posted by The Mecury, Pearl Thusi told the audience her experience of gender based violence saying, as a teenager, she swore never to marry a black man because at the time, they were the only ones that she was exposed to and they were the reason she was able to witness women being abused…”Of course, now I know better but… as a child, I had made that decision.”

Watch the video below:

As quoted by Zalebs, Thusi continued and say: “So what I’m saying, by looking at my mother’s abuse and what I went through in particular… we need to stop comparing pain. Abuse is abuse, it needs to be nipped in the bud,” stated Thusi.

“… and I wish my father’s ignorance and even my mother’s long-suffering and patience didn’t normalize this behaviour for me.” – Pearl shared a story about what she went through with her first love and the man she fell in love with after him.

As reported by IOL, speaking on one of the biggest changes since winning one of the best seasons of Drag Race, Del Rio says: “My entire life has changed. Television is a very powerful platform. I knew the show was popular among the gays in the US, but I had no idea how many fans the show has all over the world and how many straight people are fans. I’m beyond grateful for the doors it has opened for me. Let’s face it, if it wasn’t for Drag Race, you wouldn’t be interviewing me right now.”

While Del Rio is known for being a famous drag figure in New York, the Drag Race winner got her start in Louisiana, New Orleans. “I was living in New Orleans and working, doing five nights a week for 10 years in a bar, and doing costumes and wigs and stuff there for the opera and the ballet.

And then the hurricane hit, and we weren’t allowed back into the city at the time. So I visited some friends in Atlanta, and I had a friend in New York who said, “Why don’t you come up here and kill some time and figure things out?” So I came to New York, and I decided if I could get an apartment and a job, I’d stay. And I did, and that was it.”
