Manila Luzon is the Asian Glamasaurus whose fashion & beauty garner the attention of everyone in the room. A party girl at heart, Manila is found all over the New York City club scene in some outrageous creations: kimonos made of Ramen Noodle wrappers, or in some fierce drag such as sequined gowns. A staple to the City's nightlife for the last six years, you know it's a worthwhile party if this bitch pumps through with a half dozen stuffed Hello Kittys in her updo.
Celebrating her Filipino background, Manila is named after the capital of the Philippines. Additionally, her last name comes from the Philippine island, Luzon.
Originally from Minneapolis, Manila began on the stage of The Gay 90s. Soon after a fresh-faced start, she moved to New York City. Never one to shy away from attention, Manila began to cultivate unique looks that made riding the subway from her apartment in the Bronx a visual all-you-can-eat-buffet!
The better half of NYC's power drag lesbian duo, Manila Luzon has been dating the infamous Sahara Davenport from RuPaul's Drag Race Season 2 for years and years! The two are usually seen together at the gayest of spots holding each other's hands and each other's drinks! The couple was even featured in the New York Times "What Happens When Drag Queens Date Drag Queens."
Manila is the 1st runner-up on the third season of RuPaul's Drag Race and recently a Drag Professor on RuPaul's Drag U on LOGO. She released her debut hit single "Hot Couture" co-written and produced by Grammy Award winning producers of KNS Productions (Britney Spears, Lady Gaga).
