Filipinos make some noise! We’re finally having our very own drag reality show!
Cornerstone Entertainment announced the upcoming reality show called Drag Den Philippines, with Manila Luzon of RuPaul’s Drag Race fame hosting the program.
Manila shared the exciting news on an Instagram post with the caption, “It’s time to lace up, Pilipinas! You wanted a drag cartel? We heard you, and we’re making it MAJOR! The first-ever drag reality show in the Philippines is finally here, and I’m running the show!”
Manila has been known to be vocal about spotlighting Filipino drag performers and bringing the local drag scene to the next level. In a recent virtual press conference for Cornerstone Entertainment, Manila said, “I don’t know why it took a Filipino-American to start bringing attention to the drag scene in the Philippines, but if I have to do it, I will do it.”
Drag Den Philippines is produced by CS Studios and Project 8 Projects. Its premiere date and other details are yet to be announced, but one thing is for sure: the drag scene in the country is finally getting the attention it deserves.
