Joross Gamboa’s new found respect for drag queens

  • Joross Gamboa now understands how drag queens must have felt like when they perform.
  • He stars in “Deadma Walking” with Edgar Allan Guzman.
  • He shared they tucked in parts of their bodies to look as “smooth” as possible.

Joross Gamboa stars in the upcoming film, Deadma Walking, an official entry for Metro Manila Film Festival 2017. He plays a terminally ill gay, while Edgar Allan Guzman plays his best friend who helped him fake his own death.

Joross and Edgar both wear female clothing as the film progresses.



Joross shared that he, now, understands how drag queens feel when they perform.

“Grabe, ipit na ipit ang mga itlog namin ni EA! Ang sakit pala nang pinagdaraanan ng mga drag performers. Kailangan ipit na ipit siya para walang bulge. Hindi puwedeng basta mo lang siya ipitin, kailangan flat na flat siya.”

Moreover, Joross added that he and Edgar wore layers upon layers of Spanx, girdle and stockings.

“Tapos nagsuot kami Spanx at girdle para magkaroon kami ng shape. Tapos may kadera pa kami na suot para magkaroon kami ng hips at puwet. Bukod pa doon, may ilang layer pa ng stockings para makinis kapag nag-costume na kami.”

At first, Joross felt uncertain about it. He admitted that after every shoot, Joross and Edgar felt extremely tired.

“Kaya una kong naisip kung paano na kung maihi ako? Eh ang daming tatanggalin bago ako makaihi. Kaya tiniis ko na lang. Noong matapos ang shoot namin para sa drag show, hinang-hina kami ni EA kasi grabe ang pawis namin.”

Furthermore, Joross shared they sweat all over, even parts of their body that shouldn’t. He also added that his respect for drag performers grew and strengthened. He joked about having children again and laughed about it.

“Grabe ang pawis namin. Buong katawan namin hanggang singit basang-basa. Kaya lumaki ang res­peto ko sa mga drag performers. Ang hirap pala ng ginagawa nila para lang makapaghatid ng saya sa audience nila. Pero ang pinakamasakit sa lahat ay ang mga itlog namin! Magkakaanak pa kaya ako ulit? Hahaha!”
