TAIWANESE GRANDE DAME


Pangina Heals, real name Pan Pan Narkprasert, is a half-Thai, half-Taiwanese performer from Bangkok, and is commonly dubbed "The RuPaul of Thailand". A well-known host in Thailand's drag circuit, Pangina hosts a weekly LGBTQ+ night in Bangkok at the very chic venue Maggie Choo's.  Pangina Heals is also a judge and host on Drag Race Thailand. She is the equivalent of Michelle Visage in Drag RaPce Thailand, but she's also present in the workroom. She was the winner of Thailand's first ever drag competion show.Pangina Heals is also credited with popularizing waackingin Thailand, a dance genre that originated in LGBTQ community and  clubs in Los Angeles in the 1970s. Similar to vogueing, waacking uses wickedly fast arm and shoulder movement as a form of interpretative dance.
Since the announcement of her as the reality show's host, Pangina explained that her multicultural background, in addition to spending several years studying in the United States, has given her a unique and diverse take on drag. “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!” And may we add just hot and adorable out of drag he is?
And on a side note, I watched the start of Thailand's Drag Race. If you don't think it wasn't entertaining...take a gander. Quite colorful and the workroom looks much larger then RuPaul's. Gave me a few chuckles. And that Thailand version of Pit Crew?!?!?!?
