Burkhart’s does Pride with ‘Drag Race’ stars

Add this share

Burkhart's always adds a touch of “RuPaul's Drag Race” flavor to its show lineups. But for Pride, the bar boosted its stellar local cast with some special “Drag Race” guest stars.

On Friday during Femme Fatale, Ivy Winters (Season 5) joined local “Drag Race” competitor Phoenix (Season 3). On Saturday, Shangela (Seasons 2 and 3) joined the Synergy cast, which also includes Nicole Paige Brooks (Season 2) (top photo second from right).

No stranger to “Drag Race,” Shangela (top photo second from left) also knows how to wow the crowd at Burkhart's.
