Manila Luzon on All Stars 4
Read Carefully

In a lengthy post on her Instagram, drag star Manila Luzon revealed that she was asked not to wear her original runway look on this past week’s episode of All Stars 4.

The problem? According to Luzon, RuPaul felt her “Curves and Swerves: Padded for the Gawds!” ensemble was in “bad taste.”

The legendary queen had anticipated wearing a dress that looked like a bloody maxi pad. She expressed her disappointment over having to wear her backup outfit instead on social media:

“I was really looking forward to wearing this gown that I think celebrates a perfectly normal human experience! 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!”

Luzon ended her post with this disclaimer though: “Instead, I decided to wear the beautiful quilted dress you saw in the episode because it is not my show, it’s Ru’s. But because of Ru, I have my very own platform to speak for myself and show you all my interpretation!”

Luzon’s “Period Gown” was crafted by Dallas Coulter aka The Lady Hyde, who also designed Naomi Smalls’ yellow and white Stepford Wives-inspired dress.

Ru said my ORIGINAL Curves & Swerves Runway look was in “bad taste” and production told me to wear my back up. I was really looking forward to wearing this gown that I think celebrates a perfectly normal human experience! 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 normalize menstruation by looking sick’ning even if I was on my period! Instead, i decided to wear the beautiful quilted dress you saw in the episode because it is not my show, it’s Ru’s. But because of Ru, I have my very own platform to speak for myself and show you all my interpretation! ❤️ my Period Gown is by @theladyhyde
