After binging on RuPaul’s Drag Race for nearly 10 years from the other side the world, Thai fans will finally get their own version of the reality show. Drag Race Thailand aims to find the ultimate up-and-coming drag superstar in the country.

Thai production company Kantana Group, who owns the license to produce the show, has released an official poster for Drag Race Thailand which is ready to air and slay all of us next month.

Thai top designer and stylist Arya Indra will lead the show, while the talented Pangina Heals, who’s dubbed in the media as “Thailand’s RuPaul.” will co-host.

Piyarat Kaljareuk, vice president of Kantana Group, has also Instagrammed photos of the set, where the contestants will do some epic dancing and lip-syncing.

Drag Race Thailand will come to LINE TV on Feb. 15. Fans can watch on the LINE TV app or on the website.

Until then, you can watch the Coconuts TV series “Queer as Fuck,” where our host Pangina Heals goes rock-climbing, buffalo-riding, and exploring the Thai concept of hell in full drag.
