Manila Luzon Proposes To Boyfriend In Chile


Manila Luzon is putting a ring on it! The Drag Race star proposed to her boyfriend Michael Alvarez, aka Mic J Rez, this weekend.

Alvarez is Chilean by birth, and the couple have been together for several years. Manila actually popped the questions at LemonLab, one of the fiercest parties in Santiago.


Happy Birfday @micjrez ❤️

Perhaps it was experiencing one of the country’s not-uncommon earthquakes that inspired Manila to take the plunge? On Friday she posted about some recent tremors.

Luzon was previously in a relationship with fellow Drag Race queen Sahara Davenport, who passed away in 2012.

“She is embedded into my soul at this point,” Manila said on a recent episode of RuPaul’s podcast, What’s The Tee?

“It has been enough years that the pain of losing someone has gone away so now its just living through memories… It’s just a part of my life now. It was a really huge learning experience to know that this time on earth is just temporary.”
