Lessons Learned from Drag Queens

‘WHAT?! You have a big crush on a drag queen? That’s the weirdest statement I’ve ever heard in years!”

If a female friend of mine confessed her addiction on drag queens years ago, I’ll instantly give her a strange look. Do you have a serious problem in life that you don’t want me to know yet you can’t handle it? Tell me and I’ll listen. Let’s talk about boy bands instead.

But no. Actually, my love for drag queens started when I discovered LOGOTV’s Rupaul’s Drag Race. They’re currently airing the 5th season in the US of A and I’m proud to say that a lot of Filipino drag queens made it to the show.

SOLO Larry Alcala Collection & Model Search

Just like any other ordinary young kid, I am fond of reading comic strips whether that is found in a newspaper, magazine and specialized comics compilation books. It served as my dose of entertainment especially when we visit some of our relatives in the province.

Wear Larry Alcala inspired clothes and win in Solo’s Online Model Search contest

Even in school, some of my classmates even cut these comic strips and paste it in a used notebook and it served as a part of our collection (those days!). We couldn’t afford to buy our very own Archie, Jughead or Betty & Veronica comic digests so we ended up making one through the old newspaper clipping. We also supported Filipino comic strips and one of the most distinctive one are the works of Larry Alcala.

Good news to Larry Alcala Fans! SOLO, one of the most promising fashion brands in the country today recently launched the Pinoy Cartoonist Memorabilia collection featuring the works of great Larry Alcala and its Online Model Search Contest, which was officially last August 22.
