SYMONE MEETS VEEP Conway native and Rupaul’s Drag Race Season 13 winner Symone got to spend time with Vice President Kamala Harris last week.
Harris made a surprise appearance at the Capital Pride Festival in Washington, D.C., on June 12 and was joined onstage by Symone, who shared photos on Instagram of herself with the vice president and husband Douglas Emhoff.
