Drag Race's A'keria C. Davenport Just Revealed Why She Transitioned

A'Keria C Davenport transitioned

If you're not following the queens, you're only getting half the story.

In the latest episode of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars, the queens got real and began revealing things about themselves as a part of the Pink Table Talk maxi challenge. After being split into groups, the contestants were given various topics for a roundtable-style discussion. A'keria C. Davenport, Trinity K. Bonet, and Eureka got the topic of sex and the trio got pretty personal. But now, Davenport has expanded more on social media.

"Do you ever have sex in drag?" Eureka asked, kicking off the chat. 

"I'ma keep it real with you," Davenport responded. "I used to live my life as a transgender woman. That's who Kiki is. Now I have retransitioned to living my life as a guy but as you know I have my body done so the bottom half of me is very feminine."

The performer went on to say that as a result, since detransitioning, she is confronted with people who are infatuated with her curves but aren't sexually attracted to them. And while the conversation pretty quickly moved on to Bonet who opened an important conversation about living with HIV and being undetectable, Davenport apparently said more.

"They didn't are all of it but ... part of the reason I even began to entertain the idea of being trans is because I was trying to fill [a] void of being [loved] and accepted," she tweeted Thursday. "I would always get a false sense of love when I was on stage and the children lived for A'keria so I thought. maybe if I keep A'keria on I would constantly hear the applause and I could keep feeling 'loved' or 'wanted!'"

"It took me to go through that experience to not only find myself but to know who I truly was and wanted to be to know I was enough," she continued. "I faced the same obstacles most trans people ([especially] those of color) and that's why I will now and forever advocate and dedicate everything in me to protect them!"

All Stars 6 is currently airing on Paramount+, with new episodes streaming every Thursday.
