Last night, RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 3 legend Mimi Imfurst was the unfortunate victim of a home robbery tonight in which she lost thousands of dollars in cash that was earmarked for DragCon NYC merch. She writes on her Facebook page:
Now, Drag Race superfan David Benvenuto has set up a GoFundMe page “to show Mimi that there are many of us fans out there that want her at the convention this year.”
The goal is $2,500, of which $395 has been raised so far. “Donate what you can if you’re interested,” says David. “even one dollar helps!”
Says Mimi in a follow-up Facebook post:
Best of luck, Mimi! Hope to see you at DragCon!
