Empyradora (@empyradora)



This 19-year-old stunner who goes by the name Empyradora hails from Upper Pinget, Baguio City. With her hyperfeminine drag aesthetic, she has gained a reputation for not only delivering stunning looks but also showcasing her impressive performance skills. Empy Radora's versatility extends beyond drag, as she is equally skilled at playing the roles of both Tanggera and Lasenggera. Whether in or out of drag, she is a versatile queen who is sure to captivate her audience.


Myx Chanel (@myxchanel)



If you’ve been anticipating Philippine drag shows through watch parties and online commentary, you may have heard of Myx Chanel. Founder and host of Bekenemen podcast, the non-binary drag artist infuses runway looks with cartoon and anime aesthetics in her looks. 


She also starred in cosmetics brand MAC’s Holiday commercial alongside queens Marina Summers & Minty Fresh!


M1SS Jade So (@m1ssjade)



When she said #DollDomination, she was not playing. Drag performer and beauty youtuber, M1SS Jade So, talks about her journey as a transwoman and posts frequent looks on her instagram and tiktok accounts. Doll Perfection, indeed!


Margaux (@iamemersonralph)



Struggling to find wigs that are camera-ready for your next look? Margaux can help you with that and more! Hand-crafted and styled by @iamemersonralph, you’ve probably seen Wigs by Margaux, not once, but multiple times in shoots and shows of local drag performers. Best believe that Mother Elektra will approve.



Slaytina (@slaytinaaaa)



CEO, drag performer, and entrepreneur, Slaytina knows she’s not one to mess with. Inspired by Alaska Thunderfuck, this queen sheds patriarchal shackles by keeping true to her rebellious spirit. She owns The Dope Shop, with products ranging from footwear, cosmetics, and other fashionable pieces you can cop!


Matilduh (@matilduhh)



Matilduh is a well-known drag performer and floral and events designer. The 24-year old queen continues to take strides in honing her craft as a performer aiming to learn more about herself in the process.

More and more visibility to the community gives this artform its well-deserved spotlight, proving that drag is not just some party-trick. As the community continue to fight for the recognition of LGBTQIA+ rights through the SOGIE Bill (which has been stalled for two decades), the rise of drag artists in the country celebrates the diversity of identities.
