“I’ve come from some really dark moments in my life, and I want to lighten them up and become more positive.”

Blair St. Clair’s heartbreaking revelation on the Drag Race runway this week has been universally praised by fans for opening up a discussion about sexual assault.

After receiving negative critiques from the judging panel, in which they described the Chicago based queen as too “sweet”, Blair revealed that her positive exterior is the result of a traumatic past.

“I’ve come from some really dark moments in my life, and I want to lighten them up and become more positive,” she admitted.

“I’m urged to find the daintiness because I feel dirty at times. My first sexual experience — I was raped at a college party, and from that I’ve looked to find pretty things. It’s something I need to get over, but I’ve tried to turn positive the best I can.”

RuPaul thanked Blair for being so candid, and declared: “We love you Blair, we are family, and I’m actually very proud of you for being so vulnerable.”

Blair received solidarity from her sisters, Miz Cracker and The Vixen, the latter of which joked: “I’m very shaken, and I can’t wait to find that motherfucker. I love you.”

Drag Race’s Twitter account echoed Ru’s sentiments, praising the Chicago based queen for being brave.

“Thank you for being brave, thank you for being vulnerable, thank you for being you. You are beyond courageous, and we are so proud of you and love you.”
