Drag Queen Who Blamed the Unvaxxed Dies After Collapsing on Stage
Valencia Prime was hosting her own live showcase Monday night in Philadelphia when she collapsed mid-performance.
It was while doing what she loved, performing, that Prime collapsed on stage at the Tabu nightclub in Gayborhood. Paramedics were called but they found her unresponsive.
At 25 years of age, Valencia Prime was in her prime as a popular drag queen in the city. She self-identified as a trans woman and billed herself as “Philadelphia’s Plus Size Dancing Diva.”
UPDATE: The Philadelphia medical examiner lists Prime’s cause of death as atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease and classifies the manner of death as natural causes.
Prime did not have much respect for those who refused to get vaccinated.
Originally from Delran, New Jersey, Prime moved to Philadephia in 2015.
Most definitely! She looked up to all of us older millennial queens always giving complements and encouraging everyone! pic.twitter.com/QB2Nd1571u
