Kindness Is King And Love Leads The Way

When I look back on my life, I hope that I can say, “I lived a life Nina West would be proud of.”

Nina, aka the pride of Columbus, was named Miss Congeniality at the Season 11 finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race last week. This came as a surprise to absolutely no one, as it was clear from day one that she was going to be the one to beat for that particular honor.

Her acceptance speech, in true Nina fashion, was both heartfelt and hilarious.

After the “meh” heard round the world, Nina went on to say,

“Kindness is king and love leads the way. I cannot thank you guys enough for this.”

During the course of the show, the whole world has had the chance to see the role model and activist we all know and love. From politicians to comedians to everyday fans, Nina showed exactly what you can achieve when you live your life with kindness.

And the love only grew once she was named Miss Congeniality!

We could do this all day.

As for what comes next for Nina West, there are a few dreams we can all get behind. Nina just released two albums, one is a comedy album called John Goodman, and one is a children’s album called Drag is Magic.

Locally, she’ll be the Grand Marshall of the Stonewall Columbus Pride Parade this year and she’s also teaming with Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams on a special Pride flavor, Nina West’s Dream Puff.

So long story short, Nina West is making big waves. From all of us here at Columbus Navigator, we just wanted to say that we’re all so proud of you, Nina. We couldn’t have asked for a better representative of our city and we can’t wait to watch you rise!
