On this episode, Robert and Daniel interview Manila Luzon, "The Next to Next Drag Superstar of RuPaul's Drag Race Season 3." A self-labeled weird kid from Minnesota, Manila moved to New York so that her artistic personality could flourish. With a streak in her hair and some pep in her step, Karl became the fabulous Manila Luzon. Along with her partner, Sahara Davenport, Manila formed one half of a drag power couple the likes of which had never been seen before. On Season 3, she won people over with her intelligent wit and comedic timing, being both entertaining and somewhat controversial.
Although she did not win the crown, she has used Drag Race as a springboard for her career. And she is definitely not sitting on those Drag Race laurels. Manila channels her creativity through her drag persona, traveling all over the world performing and has just released her first full-length album, Eternal Queen. A fun storybook of an album, Eternal Queen takes us on a personal journey, as she uses her songs to express the extreme joys and sorrows in her life. The most poignant song on the album is the title track, which is dedicated in Sahara's honor, who passed away in 2012.
We had a marvelous KiKi with Manila and are proud to be able to bring it to our listeners!! Enjoy!!!
