Pura Luka Vega, umalma sa pagdedeklara sa kanya bilang persona non grata ng Manila at Bulacan

Pura Luka Vega expressed his dismay over the sanctions imposed upon him by two cities recently, namely Manila and Bulacan, where he was declared as a persona non grata.

On Twitter, the drag queen aired his side, saying that he was judged, without people even knowing him.

He also said that he was just declared persona non grata by cities, without the latter knowing him or understanding the intent of his performance.

"Tell me EXACTLY what I did wrong. I'm open for a dialogue and yet cities have been declaring persona non grata without even knowing me or understanding the intent of the performance."

"Drag is art. You judge me yet you don't even know me."

A drag party is a type of social gathering where drag artists impersonating men or women would often show their prowess. Drag artists, such as drag queen Pura Luka Vega, would usually wear clothing and makeup to imitate present or historical personalities to the point of exaggeration for entertainment. Drag queens would also often perform pre-planned acts with audience interaction.
