Manila Luzon to host 'Drag Dens' Philippines show


Make way for the latest series to hit the drag scene. RuPaul’s Drag Race star Manila Luzon is set to host Drag Den, the first drag competition show to hit the Philippines. The drag superstar energetically took to social media to announce the new show’s premiere.

"It's time to lace up, Pilipinas!" the drag star wrote on Twitter. "The first-ever drag reality show in the Philippines is finally here and I'm running the show."

Luzon rose to prominence after finishing as the runner-up of the third season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race." During her debut season, Manila proved to be a force to be reckoned with. Not only did her versatile skills solidify her status as a star, but also her stunning personality. Ultimately, the powerhouse came in second place. Later, she went on to appear in two seasons of All-Stars in 2012 and 2018.

Fans are quick to celebrate the news online

“Finally a show dedicated to our talented drag queens there in the Philippines!! #DragDenPH,” online user tweeted. “Ending #PrideMonth with a bang!!!” another user wrote.

Fellow drag race alum and Philippines native, Ongina also tweeted, showing love to Manila.

But, isn't there already a 'Drag Race' Philippines?

While Drag Den does not associate with RuPaul’s Drag Race franchise, it joins other drag-affiliated series.

Similarly, Drag Race alums Peppermint, Crystal, and Barbada are also starring in the new OUTtv competition series Call Me Mother. To summarize, each of the queens front a different drag house. For eight weeks, each house battles to earn the title of “First Child of Drag.” The winner also receives a cash prize of $50,000.

Up against tons of new drag queen shows, "Drag Dens" takes an new approach as a platform for Philippine queens. There's no doubt our Philippines Princess, Manila Luzon can knock out this exciting show!

When to watch

While Drag Den’s platform details and release date are still upcoming, we are excited to see some more representation from the Philippines. But for now, RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 6 is currently streaming Thursdays on Paramount +.

Be sure to catch up on all the "charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent" in this seasons competition lineup!
