Last night, Democratic Presidential Candidate, Kamala Harris made a surprise visit to legendary gay bar The Abbey, in West Hollywood to meet the people.
Scheduled to appear this evening at the HRC Presidential LGBTQ townhall hosted by CNN, Senator Harris arrived at The Abbey to pay a special visit to the owner, David Cooley, the people of West Hollywood and apparently, learn a lesson on how to snap open a fan by the fabulous Drag Queen superstar, Shangela.
Minutes before the Senator’s departure, Shangela took the opportunity to say farewell and gave a quick tutorial on snapping fans which Senator Harris nailed like a pro in just two takes. While West Hollywood wished the Senator success in her campaign, the community also feels she’s now ready to bring her new fan snapping skills to the White House, thanks to Shangela.
Please see the action on Shangela’s Instagram below, and live recorded action on The Abbey’s Instagram.

HALLELOO for HARRIS!! SENATOR Kamala Harris, that is. I met her tonite to chat with her about her advocacy for LGBTQ rights and Equality, and I can tell you that she has been and will continue to be a fierce ally for our community. I don’t agree with every decision she’s ever made but I can tell you my hope is that as she pushes forward she grows even more in tune with the needs of every member of the LGBTQIA+ family. I can for sure say I am proud to see a strong, intelligent, dedicated Black/Indian woman going after the Democratic nomination, and I urge all you to get informed about these candidates so you can make an educated VOTE for yourself, whoever that may be. And hey, check out her skills with the Halleloo fan! Now that’s a PRO! ❤️🇺🇸🌈 @kamalaharris
