Tributes pour in for beloved drag queen Nashom Wooden after death from coronavirus
A beloved staple in downtown bars dotting New York City, often squeezing his muscle into Wonder Woman get-ups, drag queen and performer Nashom Wooden has died of coronavirus complications, friends claim.
Wooden, whose alter-ego Mona Foot drew swathes of cocktail-sipping New Yorkers every night, died of COVID-19, loved ones of the star said on social media Monday night.
Since 1989, the Brooklyn-born queen has been a recognisable sight in the city.
With “I’m Every Woman” blasting from the speaker system, Wooden would heave himself onto the stage in glamorous, tight-fitting dresses and always bring the house down.
Dressed habitually in the gold, shimmering Wonder Woman get-up of the 70s television show, fingernails manicured and smile wide, countless drag icons and club owners came together to mourn Wooden.
