WATCH: First Trailer For Thailand’s ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ Spinoff Released


The first trailer for the inaugural season of the Thailand spinoff of RuPaul’s Drag Race has been released.

Drag Race Thailand will be hosted by Thai stylist and designer Art Arya, who will be filling drag superstar RuPaul’s stilettos in the spinoff.

Bangkok drag queen Pangina Heals (pictured below) will co-host.

The show’s format will be similar to the US version, as 10 local drag queens – Dearis Doll, Natalia Piarcam, Amadiva, Bunny Be Fly, Année Maywong, Petchara, Meannie Minaj, JAJA, Morrigan, and B Ella – compete in challenges to be crowned Thailand’s drag superstar.

Pangina told NewNowNext earlier this month, “I want to bring a lot of culture from the Thai side and the craft and nitty-gritty details we’ve been trained to see.

“I also understand the Western side of drag after four years in L.A., so merging those two cultures together I hope I bring in something new and relevant.

“Drag is a passion, something that should be spread—like a disease!”

The show will premiere on Thai television later this year.
