Queer Twitter has been going wild the past few days for this incredible graduation death drop video from an 18 year-old British drag queen named Sophia Stardust.
In the video, Brandon aka Sophia shows himself snatching his diploma and following it up with a rather perfect death drop, to which the crowd goes wild.
The tweet has been retweeted by many notable queers including Manny MUA, James Kavanaugh, Trixie Mattel, Phil Lester, Laganja Estranja, and James Charles.

Sophia captioned the tweet “how to graduate like a pro”. The tweet has now been viewed over a million times and has over 200K likes.
They told Gay Star News, “I just said to my friends, ‘How iconic would it be if I did a death drop? All my friends were into it. So when I got up there, and all friends were cheering, I just thought let’s do it. The crowd screamed and cheered.”
Twitter is having the best reactions to the video that has made its rounds through all of gay twitter:
Can’t we all realte to the feeling of wanting to death drop after leaving work?

We really do stan. Many other users seems to be concerned about the suit ripping, but from the video it seems to be fine.

According to their Gay Star News interview, they hopes to grow into a full-time drag career.
When asked about potentially being on Drag Race UK, they said: ”It’s such a good show. A lot of young people these days are really into it. I also do think the platform would give me a good opportunity to broaden my horizons. But I’m not going to apply until I’m ready.”
They also used her instagram to thank Gay Star News for the feature. They currently has over 1,000 articles.
