Captivating Katkat, a triumphant transgender queen, now reigns as this season’s Drag Race PH winner. Katkat emerged victorious in the final lip-sync battle against Arizona Brandy, solidifying her status as the reality show‘s frontrunner.
Captivating Katkat Slays Competition, Crowned Drag Race PH Season 2 Winner
Katkat’s victory entailed a prize of ₱1 million powered by Kumu, and a one-year supply of Anastasia Beverly Hills cosmetics. Leading up to her crowning moment, her winning performance featured ‘Kapangyarihan‘ by iDolls as her show-stopping number.
Both queens proudly displayed their flags, with Katkat emphasizing her message of “transwomen are women” by adorning it across her body once more.
Indeed, being a drag queen transcends flamboyant outfits and stunning makeup; it embodies much more than meets the eye. With such a platform, you possess the ability to carry an advocacy, effectively persuading people to rally behind what is just and virtuous.
Furthermore, she made history as the first Filipino transwoman to claim a Drag Race victory. She joined the ranks of drag race superstars alongside Sasha Colby, who triumphed during RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 15.
On her path to victory, Katkat secured her first win in the initial Lip Sync Smackdown for the Crown against Bernie, performing RuPaul’s “Just What They Want.” In another fierce Smackdown, Cubao queen Arizona Brandy battled Jade to RuPaul’s “Who Is She?“
She shone brightly with two RuBadges, especially for her standout portrayal of Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte in the fan-favorite Snatch Game episode. Her poignant Double Shantay with Bernie saved them from elimination and strengthened her path to the crown.
Congratulations, Captivating Katkat! Your message has illuminated the world for the LGBTQ+ Community.
