One of Southeast Asia's best known drag artists, Pan Pan Narkprasert, a.k.a. Pangina Heals, is about to open her own "drag showbar."
Despite the current predicament, this seasoned queen is headstrong in her mission to launch House of Heals this Jul 17-19. The "Drag Race Thailand" host's aim is to create a space where everyone can feel safe, have fun and not fear being different. Pangina has been teasing fans on social media about the opening over the past week, promising "a jungle safari of luxury, fantasy and wonder" with drag shows, live music, DJs and art that will expand the future of drag in Thailand.
So far, Pangina has revealed that performers will include "Drag Race Thailand" Season 1 runner up, Annee Maywong and Season 2 contestant Miss Gimhuay. Signs also point to "the Ariana Grande of Thailand," Kandy Zyanide, and Morrigan Xaster. Stay tuned to her Facebook
