Meet Danna Galan

Danna Galan, aka David, is the most famous Bolivian drag queen. We first met him in the thin air of Bolivia’s capital La Paz in 2012.

” I have been a Drag Queen for more than 20 years, and build a family of 60 members”,  he told us.  “I have also collected information about the history of Drag in Bolivia. It has always been very politically involved. It is called “China Morena”, and we participate in many traditional fiestas and parades. We saw one of this parades, and it was truly an amazing sight! The look and the performances of the Drag Queens was clearly inspired by traditional Bolivian folklore and culture.”
