Photo of the day: Muay Thai Drag Show

0

Our photo theme this week is Fashion Frontiers: fabulous looks at the far edges of contemporary Chinese culture.

We checked out a drag show in Shanghai this weekend (full write-up on that below). The whole event was stupendous, and so were all the performers, but we wanted to spotlight this majestic, unique, badass soul right here.

Concept, badass. Ink, badass. Shredded BMI, badass. Performance, badass. There was literally a whole choreographed Muay Thai fight that required a big, intimidating stunt man.

So today, we offer this brave warrior a salute. Knock ’em dead.
