After an intense and exciting season of “RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race,” the entire cast (minus Phi Phi O’Hara) came together on Thursday to reflect and process during the show’s reunion.

At one point during the interview, RuPaul asked Roxxxy Andrews, who hails from Orlando, about the Pulse nightclub massacre when 49 queer people, mostly of color, were brutally murdered by Omar Mateen. A number of queens who’ve appeared on “Drag Race” have performed at Pulse, and three of the queens on this season of “All Stars” have strong roots at the club: Andrews, Detox and Ginger Minj.

“For that to happen that night was a nightmare,” Andrews told The Huffington Post. “It was just an absolute tragedy. We lost 49 beautiful people that night, a lot of fans, a lot of friends. I have a tattoo which I got for the Pulse victims and they live for me ― I don’t go a day that I don’t think about them.”

Watch the clip above to hear these three talk more about the impact of Pulse, and catch re-runs of this season “RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race” reunion on Logo.
