After Katya announced that she would be taking a break from drag to focus on herself, many people from the LGBT community responded and posted words of support. One of her RuPaul’s Drag Race season seven sisters, Pearl, shared a lengthy and honest emotional response on her Instagram Stories that we transcribed.

In her comment, she shares advice for queens who are thinking of going on Drag Race.

“It ain’t for everybody,” she says. “There’s a long road from home to the stage, and it can be dark and bleak and nobody is there to hold your hand through it or at least warn you.”

She also describes the other emotional trauma that can happen being a full-time drag queen, including sexual harassment and being taking advantage of by greedy managers.
