Very few details are available at the time of posting, but the below message was just shared by Peaches Christ, who says that she discovered longtime friend and drag legend Heklina dead in her London hotel room earlier today:

More from SF Standard:

Heklina, the longtime drag performer who rose to fame in the 1990s and threw the edgy and long-running drag show Trannyshack (later Mother) before co-opening SoMa drag club Oasis, has reportedly died in London.

Collaborator and fellow San Francisco drag legend Peaches Christ, also known as Joshua Grannell, had been co-starring with Heklina in a production of their drag parody, Mommie Queerest, at Soho Theatre. Grannell posted to Facebook on Monday that he went to pick Heklina up where she had been staying and found her dead.
