Manila Luzon works Jungle’s Other Show XXXL crowd

Add this share

Like so many of her “RuPaul’s Drag Race” sisters before her, Season 3 finalist Manila Luzon stormed into gay Atlanta amid a torrent of excitement and buzz on Friday at Jungle. To screaming fans, she put the “Xtra” in The Other Show XXXL.

With a Hello Kitty number and a signature Cruella Deville streak in her wigs, Luzon (photo, with fans) served as special guest. Edie Cheezburger and the Other Show queens cranked up their numbers as wel, creating November’s supersized mainstage version of the weekly cabaret show. DJ King Atlas provided the beats.

Luzon is the latest celebrity performer to hit the XXXL stage. Alaska Thunderfuck rolled up on the last XXXL, Amanda Lapore dropped in before that, and  Lady Bunny got frothed up at the debut. And don't even get us started on all of the  RuPaul queens in Atlanta.
