dragging our race to new heights

i'm currently fascinated by RuPaul's Drag Race Season 3. i love drag queens. i especially love this season because it features Raja (Sutan to those who are long time fans of America's Next Top Model) and our very own Karl Westerberg, or as she is more popularly known, Manila Luzon.

she got her first name from the capital of the Philippines and her last name from one of the largest islands, Luzon. i love her because she is funny and she is very much proud of her heritage. she is aware that Asians are a minority in the US and she doesn't mind making a parody of our race. she is very talented after all and it is what she always proves in her performances:  Filipinos are not just domestic helpers, caregivers and boxers,  they're performers of the highest caliber.

really proud of you, girl!
