Start your first week of 2023 with the freshest Drag Den queens. The theme of the show’s fifth episode airing today, Jan. 5, is Pinoy Tradition. The sneak peek teased emotional scenes with the queens and Sassa Gurl, all dressed in white wedding regalia for one of the challenges despite the absence of same-sex marriage rights in the country. So, who will be drag enforcer Francis Libiran’s favorites and who will be stirring up drama in this episode?
Find out by catching one or several “Drag Den” viewing parties this week and get the chance to meet the queens you’re rooting for.
Drag Den holds its own official weekly (finally!) viewing party. While this week’s event won’t be as grand as the previous one that served as the launch of Ms. Dragdagulan, having Sassa Gurl always equates to a fun time. You’ll also be enjoying performances from Aries Night, O-A, and Shewarma.
