In honor of National Coming Out Day (TODAY, October 11), the cast of “Shade: Queens of NYC” came together to tape a special video featuring personal messages of support and encouragement for the LGBTQIA community and its allies. These messages are a timely reminder that everyone has the right to live a life filled with hope, respect and a whole lot of fabulosity!

Shot in a vérité follow documentary format, Shade reveals a side of drag life never before seen on television, examining the unspoken stigmas, taboos and personal sacrifices that drag performers often face on their journey to stardom. Each episode will showcase the day-to-day lives of each individual performer, on and off the stage. Brita Filter, Chelsea Piers, Holly Box-Springs, Jada Valenciaga, Jasmine Rice LaBeija, Marti Gould Cummings, “Showbiz Spitfire” Paige Turner, and Tina Burner are among the talent featured.
