Manila Luzon Quotes
- I consider myself an artist, but instead of paint or clay, my medium is a drag. I put so much of myself into my drag from every detail of the costume, makeup, and hair to my performance, the way I speak or even stand.
- I am a pig! I love to eat! I will eat anything! If you put it in front of me, I will put it in my mouth, even if it doesn’t taste good! And I can’t stop eating until all the food is gone. It’s probably one of the contributing factors to why I became a drag queen. I can eat whatever I want because I can just strap myself into a corset!
- If people don’t like you, it doesn’t matter how much uniqueness, nerve, or talent you have!
- I really think my fun personality is my ace in the hole. I will never claim to be the most beautiful or most talented queen because I can think of many queens who fit that description. However, it’s my “charisma” that takes me to a higher level in my drag!
- Playing on stereotypes was meant to be humorous. If it doesn’t tickle you in certain spots, it’s not going to be funny. Falling down the stairs is a seriously dangerous thing, but watching it is HILARIOUS!
