Congratulations to Pittsburgh's fiercest queen, Miss Sharon Needles for making it to Hollywood! She's been making the Steel City gag for years, and now she's taking it to the nation. Seriously sickening!

Sharon (as a boy) is in the middle of the third row.

YES...congratulations to her! Pittsburgh does have a prominent, healthy, gay scene and this is great that one of our own will be featured! After all, Pittsburgh IS the 5th gayest city in the nation according to The Advocate.

Thanks for spreading the good news!

Fun! I didn't really watch Drag Race last season, but I will totally check out the local talent this time around.

Here is Sharon's famous (NSFW, for bad language and racy images) first single and tribute to Pittsburgh, "412/724 *****."

Dan Onorato's was so small!

Congratulations to Miss Needles!

Incidentally, I was reading something the other day about how reality shows like to cast people from the Pittsburgh region, theoretically because they combined a sort of Midwestern down-to-earth vibe with enough East Coast forcefulness-of-personality to make for good TV. Probably that theory doesn't have much direct application in this case, but I still find it interesting.

In a different way, that description doesn't match Orlando, who was on Top Chef Just Deserts either. He was an arrogant a-hole on there. He wasn't very down to earth.

Good point (although he sort of mellowed out at the end).

Maybe this theory, if it is true at all, only applies to more general reality shows and not these specialized ones.
