Drag Queen Nique Manza Is Bringing Death-Defying Stunts to Drag in the Philippines

Thai Drag queen and judge on Thailand’s Drag Race, Pangina Heals (the RuPaul of Thailand), tweeted out “The Philippines has some of the best drag performers in the world @theonlymanza”. 

Pangina might be onto something because check out this viral video of drag queen Nique Manza (they/them) that she tweeted out.

Drag queens are known to add some unique choreography to their shows, but this level of athleticism is otherworldly. These Pink-level acrobatics are just a regular part of Manza’s artistry.

The genderqueer pole/aerial artist, choreographer, and drag queen has been performing death-defying stunts for a while. You may have come across many of their performances going viral on social media. 

Like this Halloween performance.

Or maybe you were just as mesmerized as we were by their voguing.

Well, we’re definitely not the only ones noticing Manza’s technique. With over 11,000 followers on Instagram, Manza is showering the internet with their brand of drag. It also looks like talent runs in the family, as Manza’s drag mother, Precious Paula Nicole, won the first season of Drag Race Philippines, hosted by RuPaul’s Drag Race alum Jiggy Caliente.

But the video that Pangina Heals tweeted out has everyone talking.

Maybe there’s a spot on Drag Race Philippines Season 2 for Manza.
