Casa de Manila (House of Manila)

The "House of Manila" was established in 2001. In the traditional "drag" world, one takes a novice drag queen under her or his wing to teach & inspire them to become their own unique person. Through these encounters and friendships, a 'family' evolves. Sometimes, drag is merely a once-a-year Halloween event, for some, it becomes a lifestyle, and for others, it is about respect for our differences - gay or straight. Whatever the path maybe, it is about nurturing self-esteem, beauty, talent & pride.
