N.Y. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gushed over drag queen Sasha Velour after Velour’s “Smoke and Mirrors” drag show in Washington, D.C. Monday night, calling it “fabulous,” “incredible” and “amazing.”

The show, described by Philadelphia Gay News as an “autobiographical” performance art piece that “combines drag, video and magic,” features Velour as its star performer as the winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 9.

AOC, who sat in a premium box seat during the show, received a standing ovation from the audience for attending the event.
