    Dusty Ray Bottoms talking about being subject to conversion therapy was heartbreaking as well

    I love that moment at 4:45 where Alyssa Edwards checks on Adore. She stops immediately talking as soon as she sees Adore is in pain. Really shows her love for her fellow queens.

    why on earth did you even put Pearl on this list? and you didn't put the talk Monique and Dusty had on how crazy religious they grew up. Dusty even said that his family sent him to gay conversion. that should have been on the list. not Pearl.

    Whoever believes that Blair only told the story to "save" herself is completely ignorant. Firstly, Ross' comments about her look and how "sweet" she is every week made her speak up, and second, she didn't even know for sure she was going to be in the bottom two. For all she knew, she could've been the last one to be 'save'. So can we please cut Blair some slack and be thankful that she spoke up and brought more awareness to the issue of sexual assault/violence.

    Seeing Katya being so vulnerable is heartbreaking because she’s always so funny and laughs all the time. That’s her way to hide anxiety.

    I feel like yara sofia breaking down during a lip sync should've at least been an honourable mention...

    Charlie Hides talking about the rise of HIV/AIDS as it was happening around him was heartbreaking for me.

    Why is Pearl on this list instead of Dusty talking about being sent to a conversion camp??

    Can't blame you for thinking Detox's story about finding her ex after his suicide and admitting how uncomfortable it made her to see everyone play sad for a mini challenge was too real for the show AND this list (seems to me not even the producers were expecting it). Hell, it wrecks me every time I watch it.

    it just goes to show how much trauma is in the lgbtq+ community. we’re human too, and we’re here. as fabulous and bold and vibrant as we may seem, we go through so much just because of who we are. so please just show us love and respect when you can. compared to what we face every day, it means so much.
