The ICONIC and controversial Manila Luzon Period Dress Doll is here. She may feel a little bloated, but she’s as fabulous as ever!!
RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars contestant Manila Luzon says she was asked to change her runway outfit in the episode, after RuPaul called her original look — in which she dresses in a period dress — was in “bad taste”.
Luzon says production told her to wear her back-up outfit, a riff on an 18th century Versailles quilt, instead of the period piece. She expresses frustration at the censoring, saying her point was to de-stigmatise menstruation.
"I was really looking forward to wearing this gown that I think celebrates a perfectly normal human experience!,” she wrote. “Many of my fans are young women who may feel pressured by society to be embarrassed by periods. It’s empowering to teach young women about their bodies, encourage them to celebrate them AND to question people who tell them not to!”
