It’s been almost a year since the shooting at Pulse nightclub, the site of the deadliest mass shooting in American history. The Orlando club was a hub of the gay and Latino community, as well as a popular spot for drag queens. Many of the queens from RuPaul’s Drag Race performed there, including all-stars Roxxxy Andrews and Coco Montrese. For the queens of season nine, they were competing on Drag Race, which airs on VH1 Fridays at 8 pm EST, just a couple of months after the shooting. In this exclusive clip from the upcoming episode of Drag Race, some of the queens including Trinity Taylor and Cynthia Lee Fontaine, who almost performed the night of the tragic shooting, remember the people they lost.
