Austin Drag Queen Brigitte Bandit Just Got the Prettiest Gift from Dolly Parton

Emell Adolphus READ TIME: 1 MIN.

Texas-based drag queen Brigitte Bandit, who calls herself the "Dolly of ATX," just received the greatest gift from the icon herself.

As reported by the Austin American-Statesman, Bandit got the chance to unwrap an autographed, one-of-a-kind pink guitar in front of a cheering crowd. In typical Dolly fashion, the guitar featured shinning butterflies and Brigitte's initials in rhinestones.

Per the Stateman, Parton's signature reads, "To Brigitte. Love, Dolly Parton."


Apparently, Brigitte ended up on Parton's radar after her friends released a video highlighting her work speaking out against bills attempting to ban drag in the Lone Star State.

"Never did I ever imagine I'd be sent a custom rhinestoned guitar signed by Dolly herself to me after seeing the work I've done this year. I love you @dollyparton thank you so much for helping me find my strength in femininity and kindness," said Brigitte.

A queen knows how to appreciate a fellow queen.
