Drag queen Valencia Prime passes away after collapsing on-stage

Recommended Posts

A popular Philadelphia drag queen died after collapsing in the middle of her show at a gay bar, according to reports. 

Valencia Prime, a 25-year-old transgender woman, was performing at Tabu Lounge and Sports bar on Monday when she collapsed on stage, the bar's owner said, per NBC News. 

Paramedics responded to the scene, but Prime was unresponsive, performer Asia Monroe told WPVI-TV. The local medical examiner listed her cause of death as Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease (a form of heart disease) and noted that she died of natural causes, WPVI reported. 

"Today we mourn the loss of a very bright and rising star in the performance community and a person who was always full of love and positivity," Tabu Lounge said in a statement. "We say goodbye to Valencia Prime but we will not forget the light you brought to the stage."
