RuPaul's Drag Race star Sharon Needles gave a shout-out to the repeal movement during her Dublin gig

The performer has been vocal about the Eighth Amendment in the past.

BACK IN 2012, drag queen Sharon Needles was crowned America’s Next Top Drag Superstar during the fourth series of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Ever since, the 36-year-old has been travelling and performing in drag across the world. On Friday night, she returned to Dublin as part of her Battle Axe Tour.

During her show in the Button Factory, Sharon Needles decided to take a moment out of her performance to talk about the Eighth Amendment, much to delight of her fans. Halfway through her song Supernature, she screamed “REPEAL!”

She then went on to say:

If I’m going to make my living dressed as a woman, I wanna make sure that the women that respect and support me get the absolute best healthcare and the choices that they can make about their own bodies.

It’s not the first time, either.

During her 2016 show in Dublin, Sharon spoke out in support of repealing the Eighth Amendment. She later shared photos in a ‘repeal’ t-shirt.
