Watch Shangela teach Kamala Harris how to clack a fan at a gay bar

Senator Kamala Harris delivered a solid performance at the CNN/HRC LGBTQ Town Hall in Los Angeles on Thursday, thanks in no small part to a fan clacking lesson from none other than Shangela.

Harris made a stop at West Hollywood gay staple The Abbey the night before the forum, chatting it up with supporters and getting wild on the dance floor. Well, at least the chatting part.

Among those in attendance was Drag Race and A Star Is Born star Shangela, who offered Harris a vital gay lesson: how to properly clack a fan.

HALLELOO for HARRIS!! SENATOR Kamala Harris, that is. I met her tonite to chat with her about her advocacy for LGBTQ rights and Equality, and I can tell you that she has been and will continue to be a fierce ally for our community. I don’t agree with every decision she’s ever made but I can tell you my hope is that as she pushes forward she grows even more in tune with the needs of every member of the LGBTQIA+ family. I can for sure say I am proud to see a strong, intelligent, dedicated Black/Indian woman going after the Democratic nomination, and I urge all you to get informed about these candidates so you can make an educated VOTE for yourself, whoever that may be. And hey, check out her skills with the Halleloo fan! Now that’s a PRO! ????? @kamalaharris
