There are few things in life that make me happier than a drag queen! I love the over the top ferocity, the makeup, the clothes, everything! I am a HUGE RuPaul’s Drag Race fan. Last year I went to a party where we turned the Olympics off early to watch the Premiere of Drag Race Season 2. For those of you who may live under a rock, RuPaul’s Drag Race is an amazingly entertaining show on Logo, where Drag Queens compete to be the top queen! They compete in a wide range of challenges, create their own outfits, and it is the only reality show to make an elimination round even more interesting by making the bottom contestants ‘Lip Synch for your Life’, where they can make their last desperate plea to stay. It is television’s finest hour.
This year my friends and I made it out to Therapy Bar in NYC for the opening premiere of this season’s Drag Race. While there were a few contestants of season 2 and 3 there, MiMi Furst and Pandora Box to name a few, one stood far apart from the competition, Manila Luzon! She bombarded our bar table immediately with her thigh high leather boots, sequins, and feathers. She was the NICEST person, and SO fantastically fierce! We took a thousand pictures of her, and basked in her beauty all night! She was totally friendly, hysterical, and positively stunning! Manila had made some die-hard Fanilas that night!
As the season progressed, it turned out not only was Manila beautiful, she was a top competitor! As soon as I saw her be this crazy character ‘Tweaker’ in Episode 3 ‘Queens in Space’ I knew she was bringing it!! Girlfriend was standing out above the rest, and now here she is in the finale episode on this Monday night!
The last time I went to the RuPaul Party at Boxers it was hard to even get near Manila she had so many fans! I am so glad that this season has catapulted her! I cannot wait to see if Manila wins this season of Drag Race! I hope you guys are rooting for her too!!!
Who is your favorite Drag Race competitor???
