Needles’ Crowned

Deep in the belly of Lawrenceville, in the smoky Blue Moon bar, the Monday night crowd was breathless and rowdy, packed to the gills and glued to the television in anticipation.  In any other bar, it would have been the Steelers at the Superbowl or the Penguins in game seven for the Stanley Cup.  But no, it was the season finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Pittsburgh’s Sharon Needles was crowned winner of season four of the Drag Race amongst gales of cheers and slopped beers.  She distinguishes herself with her flair for horror and sharp wit.

Hooray, Sharon!  We’re so proud.  Can’t wait to see her back in Pittsburgh, a long summer of touring.
