When McGowan was a teenager, her mother suspected she was on drugs and put her in a rehab clinic.
She says after the incident she ran away and spent a few days living on the street, according to People magazine.
'At 13, when I was a runaway, I was taken in by the most amazing drag queens in Portland, Oregon,' McGowan told The Advocate. 'We didn't always know where our next meal was coming from, but there was so much camaraderie and love,' she said. 'Not to mention, those girls could paint a face, and I learned how because of them.'
