One of our favorite queens on RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 3 just reminded us why we love her so. While in Lima, Peru, on a stop of Voss Event’s Werq the World tour, Shangela hosted an impromptu fan meet-and-greet. And the photo evidence from the Shangela fan meetup is really adorable. She’s literally kissing babies, y’all!
On Tuesday morning, Shangela tweeted: “Last day in Lima, Peru. Let’s do a fan meet up today. I won’t be in drag. I won’t be doing a performance. But for all the fans here who want to come say HI and take a selfie, should we do it today? 2:00 p.m.?”
She also took to Instagram to explain what she was doing and to show her fans and followers where she would be. “I’m gonna be right here, at this observation deck at 2:00 pm.”
And guess what? So many fans showed up for the spur-of-the-moment Shangela fan meetup.
A RuPaul’s Drag Race Peru account tweeted that photo of her holding a fan’s baby, with the caption: “@itsSHANGELA Thank you some much for your kindness with your Peruvian fans. Our Khaleesi, a queen for the people #PeruLovesShangela.”

In another set of pics tweeted, Shangela is seen posing with an excited fan with a huge, radiant smile.

And in this video, you can see just how crazy long the line was to meet her!
Fans near and far gushed over the surprise Shangela fan meetup. One wrote: “This is so beautiful Shangie, I’m so happy for you and proud of the bright light you’ve become in this community and all over the world. Stay healthy and happy, I love u.”
Another added: “MISS SHANGIE, I’VE BEEN ABLE TO SEE YOU LIKE 7 TIMES TODAY AND I AM SO GREATFUL FOR THE GREAT KINDNESS YOU’VE OUR COUNTRY ❤ You are really the queen of the people and you deserve all the love and admiration from the world ❤❤❤❤ THANK YOU SO MUCH!”
A queen of the people is right! Now, can we get a “Halleloo” up in here?
