Shangela Presented With Charity Award At Vallarta Pride 2021 Kickoff. Drag sensation SHANGELA was presented with the “Pink Vanguard Award” for her charity work in the Vallarta community at The Pink Dinner during a Vallarta Pride kickoff ceremony May 26, 2021.  In April 2021 she raised $15,000 USD in only 7 days for the #VivaVallarta grocery donation program supporting the charity @ayudemosaayudar that provided needy families with bags with vegetables, fruits, beans and more.  On March 28, 2021 Industry nightclubpv opened their doors so her charity could set up their giveaway right in the heart of the PV’s gayborhood zona romantica. At the pride ceremony she presented Luis Tello, one of the Ayudemos A Ayudar team organizers, with a check for $10,000 USD as the remaining balance of the funds raised.  

Shangela (D.J. Pierce) is best recognized as the only contestant to compete on three separate seasons of the Emmy-award winning reality series Rupaul’s Drag Race (seasons 2, 3 and All Stars 3). A native of Paris, Texas, Pierce graduated with honors from Southern Methodist University and currently resides in Los Angeles. He is involved in various charity work and remains a member of the SAG-Aftra Union.
