Deja Vu. And something about lies.
Draggy Potter is the perfect movie to watch on my flight across the pond! And you had best believe i would be Hagridida. Dragracadabra! Alohamora!

MASSIVE APPRECIATION POST! Thank you to my @fit_club_columbus family for this amazing celebration of fitness AND equality at their 4th Annual Pride WOD, benefiting The Nina West Foundation. “Fit Club Columbus @fit_club_columbus This is the 4th year we've held the Fit Club Pride WOD (Workout of the Day in Crossfit speak), and this year we had over 200 people in attendance from gyms all around Columbus. We asked for donations to the Nina West Foundation in order for people to join us for the workout on Thursday, June 13, and all money that was raised was donated. We had a party afterwards and it was a really great event full of happiness and a great way to kick off Pride weekend in Columbus.” Thank you to these amIng companies who helped provide food, beverages, entertainment, and support! *lululemon (@lululemon) *Rockmill Brewery (@rockmillbrewery) *Yellow Brick Pizza (@yellowbrickpizza) HUGE THANKS TO MY DAUGHTER @roxynikole for hosting the event!

To my great nation- happy birthday. Together, ALL of us will make it a more perfect union. For all.
One year ago today, I came home from the ride of a lifetime. When I left home those weeks before, I had no idea what to expect and I truly had no clue how - if it all - my life would change. It should be said, and I have many times, RuPaul’s Drag Race was the most difficult thing I have ever done in my career. But that opportunity has brought me more than I could have ever imagined. I’ve made some remarkable new friends along this journey, and have been constantly reminded of the love and support I have from those who were in my corner before the Race. I’ve felt overwhelming support from my family, fans, Columbus, and my friends - far and wide. Now, as I write this, I am sitting in Paris, with one of my dearest friends, celebrating this tremendous ride and all that is to come. Thank you to everyone who has had their hand in my journey. Thank you to my tribe. Thank you to my city. Thank you @rupaulofficial - Here is to the next chapter. Here is to new dreams. Pictured: the first picture is the last one I took before I left, the second is my first picture back, pictures three and four were funny pictures made by friends in Columbus while I was away, obviously not believing my story of foot surgery, the fifth is an image from Union Cafe that was never published because I was too afraid it was too obvious, and the sixth and final picture was my first time back in stage with @thevirginiawest that same weekend.
To this incredible person who decided to celebrate me and the message I live my life by at the World Pride Parade in NYC, thank you. If anyone knows who this is, please let me know! No go forth and #gobigbekindgowest #worldpride2019 #worldpride #pride #ninawest

I love @jenibrittonbauer more than I could possibly say. For the last 15 years of our friendship, she has been a mentor, sounding board, and confidant as I have navigated through some of the difficult turns in my career. She, to me, and to many others, truly represents what the spirit of Columbus is all about. She is no nonsense. Brilliant. Compassionate. Driven. KIND. She recognizes that none of us succeed unless all of us do. And she makes the best ice cream anywhere. Jeni is a true one-of-kind gem that has consistently and constantly walked the walk, led the way, and carved paths for so many others. I am beyond grateful to call her my friend. And speaking of her true outstanding awesomeness, she is the first partner I have ever had who insisted she give 100% - yes 💯 💯 💯 PERCENT of the proceeds from the Nina West Dream Puff Ice Cream and The Nina West Collection (available online now at Jenis.com) to the Nina West Foundation. Jeni- thank you. THANK YOU for celebrating me and the work I do. THANK YOU for being the ultimate champion of our beautiful Columbus. You are stuck with me. I love you. @jenisicecreams #jeni #jenibrittonbauer #jenisicecream #jenissplendidicecream #icecream #ninawest #ninawestdreampuff #dragismagic #gobigbekind #gobigbekindbeyou #gobigbekindgowest #asplendiddayforicecream
