Fans Are Pulling Together to Help This Former 'Drag Race' Guest

For the price of your morning coffee, you can make a world of difference for this queen.


Piyah Martell, the memorable guest from RuPaul's Drag RaceSeason 4's butterfly-inspired headpiece challenge who lives with caudal regression syndrome, needs your help. As happens with many young queer and transgender people, Piyah has become homeless, according to World of Wonder.

One of Piyah's friends, Marcello Zen Bello, started a GoFundMe page for her. According to the page, Bello aims to bring Piyah to Irvine, California, where she will be provided with resources and shelter. At the time of reporting, over half of the $10,000 goal was already raised.

"Piyahs mom died when she was only 3 and her father died recently," Bello writes. "She has made television appearances, many of us saw her on [RuPaul's Drag Race] and of course her viral YouTube videos. My goal here is to gather her social media following to raise funds so that we can get her into a stable home and end her long time suffering."

If you can, we're asking you to take two minutes out of your day to help lift Piyah out of a terrible situation and into the arms of friends, support, and safety. We're hoping for the best for Piyah and will post updates as her story develops!
