The Biden administration has come under intense fire for pushing the radical LGBTQ agenda.
But one piece of recent news caused an uproar across the nation.
And Kamala Harris was seeing red after her famous drag queen friend was accused of committing a brutal rape.
A famous drag queen with a close connection to Vice President Kamala Harris is now facing rape allegations.
Don’t dance with this star
A former participant on RuPaul’s Drag Race and Dancing With the Stars was recently accused of rape in a civil lawsuit filed in a Los Angeles Superior Court.
Daniel McGarrigle accused drag queen Darius Jeremy “DJ” Pierce of raping him during the production of the HBO show We’re Here in 2020.
As a drag queen, Pierce goes by the stage name “Shangela.”
But what is most shocking about this case is the connections Pierce has to the rich and powerful, including Vice President Kamala Harris.
Given these latest accusations, you can be sure Harris won’t be dancing with this star anytime soon.
Date rape drugs and sexual assault
According to court documents, People Magazine reported that McGarrigle claims Pierce lured him into his hotel room while he was intoxicated, supposedly to help him pack for an upcoming flight.
McGarrigle, a production assistant on the HBO show, said he became sick after Pierce provided him alcohol earlier in the evening.
The HBO reality show is about a trio of drag queens who travel across the United States to recruit small-town residents to participate in one-night-only drag shows.
Pierce was one of the trio of drag queens featured.
According to McGarrigle, Pierce told him to relax on his hotel bed after he began vomiting.
McGarrigle then claimed he awoke later to Pierce pouring a drug “used for sexual purposes” on him and attempting an act of sexual assault.
Pierce has denied McGarrigle’s allegation in a statement provided to People and NBC.
‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ alum Darius Jeremy “DJ” Pierce, who goes by the stage name Shangela, has been accused of rape in a civil lawsuit filed Wednesday in Los Angeles.

“I can’t begin to explain how hurt and disgusted I am by these totally untrue allegations,” he said. “They are personally offensive and perpetuate damaging stereotypes that are harmful not only to me, but also to my entire community.”
Pierce is also attempting to claim he was only being targeted in the lawsuit as a result of his drag queen identity.
“As a hardworking and outspoken drag entertainer for more than a decade, I know that I am far from alone in battling ignorance, bigotry, and prejudice, all of which played a role in the filing of this complaint,” he said.
Drag Queens in the Vice President’s home
According to NBC, Pierce appeared at an event hosted by Harris earlier this year.
The drag queen even spoke at the homosexual pride event Harris hosted at her Vice Presidential residence.
But given the current allegations, it’s unlikely Pierce will be invited back by Harris anytime soon.
McGarrigle is seeking unspecified damages from Pierce and the show’s production company, Buckingham Television.
McGarrigle alleges the encounter occurred in a Monroe, Louisiana, hotel room following an after-work party in February of 2020.
The lawsuit states that Pierce purchased and handed McGarrigle five shots of alcohol and two mixed drinks at the party before asking him to come back to his hotel room to help pack for an early flight the next day.
Once back at the hotel room, the suit claims McGarrigle “immediately threw up in the toilet.”
Pierce then allegedly suggested McGarrigle spend the night with him in his room, saying, “if you want to lay down in my bed until you feel better, you can do that.”
McGarrigle agreed, according to the lawsuit, and passed out on Pierce’s bed fully clothed.
At some point throughout the evening, McGarrigle alleges he woke up with his pants pulled down and poppers — a liquid commonly used by gay men during anal sex — being poured on the side of his face.
In response, McGarrigle claims he screamed “No!” and tried to fight Pierce off but felt “extremely weak.”
According to the lawsuit, Pierce repeatedly told McGarrigle that “I know you want it, and you’re going to take it.”
After the alleged assault, McGarrigle was “fearful of losing his job” and “did not immediately report the sexual assault to the authorities or to Buckingham TV.”
McGarrigle ended up resigning in the summer of 2021, the suit states.
According to McGarrigle’s attorney, Daniel Gilleon, McGarrigle has also been in contact with the Ruston, Louisiana, Police Department.
However, no charges have been filed at this time.
