We learned this week why drag queens and adult film stars are such good friends, but that relationship goes one giant step further for Shangela and Liam Riley, or rather, “Bambi Wadley.”

For some time, Riley has been traveling with the Drag Race all-star, assisting her as she tours the world.

But this week Bambi made her own performance debut in Los Angeles, lip syncing to Ariana Grande’s “Break Free” at a West Hollywood bar.

Judging by a quick IG scan, this mother/daughter duo is nothing but love:
