RuPaul Refused To Let Manila Luzon Wear A Period-Themed Dress On 'All Stars'
Drag queen Manila Luzon has revealed that both RuPaul and producers of 'RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars' banned her from wearing a menstruation-themed dress.
Manila Luzon has spilled major tea after she revealed that even though she still managed to snag a spot in the top in last week's ep of Drag Race, producers actually stopped her from wearing her original menstruation-themed dress in the Curves and Swerves Runway challenge, with RuPaul saying it was "in bad taste."
Looking fierce AF in a snap posted to the gram, the season three original revealed that she was hoping to rock the maxi-pad dress as she wanted to send a positive message to younger fans -- but was instead told to wear her backup gown after the dress was deemed inappropriate.
"I was really looking forward to wearing this gown that I think celebrates a perfectly normal human experience!” Manila wrote in the caption.
"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!”
“My goal with this look was to normalise menstruation by looking sick’ning even if I was on my period!” she added.
Instead, Luzon served Lil Bo Peep x Chanel-style realness in a pink and black quilted dress, which saw her nab a spot in the top and face off in a lip sync battle against Monique Heart.
Meanwhile, fans were quick to come to the defence of our Queen, insisting that production should have allowed her to rock the risqué outfit, as well as pointing out the double standards within the show.
