Biography

Sahara Davenport, born Antoine Ashley, (December 17, 1984 – October 1, 2012),was an American drag queen and reality television personality and classically-trained dancer. He was best known as a contestant on the second season of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Early career

A native of Dallas, Davenport began his drag career while attending Southern Methodist University.

After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts in dance, he relocated to New York City, where he began performing regularly at many gay bars and nightclubs throughout the city.

Davenport has been seen on television on A&E Network’s 15 Films about Madonna, Voom HD’s Magnificent Obsessions, and on ABC’s daytime soap opera One Life to Live. He was featured in the pilot of Judge Karen as an angry Beyoncé impersonator who sues the paparazzi. Davenport made his art film debut in Kalup Linzy’s video-performance piece “Melody Set Me Free,” which was shown at the Whitney Museum of American Art. He also appeared in the music videos “Girl Problems” by the group Girl Problems and “Gettin’ Over You” by David Guetta and Chris Willis.

In Antoine’s own words… I was 4 years old and living in the projects of Aiken, South Carolina when Michael Jackson moon walked across the stage in his legendary Motown 25 performance. This performance and this man changed my life. I spent the rest of my childhood imitating him and any other dancer I would see on television.
