Manila Luzon is one of America's favorite drag queens or my favorite drag queen. It's basically the exact same thing. Manila Luzon is a combination of the largest island in the islands Philippines and the capitol. Fun little geography lesson from Bubble Righted.
Manila Luzon is drag queen royalty. She was in a serious relationship with Sahara Davenport (winner of the seconds season of RuPaul's Drag Race) before Sahara passed away from heart failure a few years ago. It was the most tragic thing that ever happened. RuPaul said something along the lines of how he think of all of his girls as eternal. It was heartbreaking.
I love RuPaul's Drag Race. This is the most perfect show that's ever existed. The Mayor and Miss Sara Bellum and I watch this show religiously together. It's kind of our thing. It is the glitter glue that binds our love for each other together. My favorite season is season 3. That's the season that Manila was on. She killed it. How many other queens could pull off a pineapple the way she did. No one.
This season was full of shade and drama. The popular queens labeled themselves as “Heathers”. A reference to the classic eighties dark comedy The Heathers. And, proceeded to call all the other queens “boogers”. It was cold. How to be a bully. That is what that show really taught us that season. It was amazing. Those queens did not rest until they got rid of every single booger remaing on RuPaul's Drag Race. Carmen Carrera was on it that season. .
In totally unrelated news, I was at this event recently where there was this boy who looked exactly like Christian Slater in The Heathers. As great as that is. Like he was cute and all, but let's be real. I was a little afraid that he had a plan to mass murder everyone. That might be unreasonable, but you obviously haven't seen The Heathers as many times as I have.
Side note that Manila Luzon makes club appearances. If she is in your city. Go see her. She's amazing. She might even perform “Helen Keller”. Probably one of the most offensive songs in existence, but most certainly labeled as one of my guilty pleasures.
