The official trailer showcased Manila Luzon sitting on a throne as she excitedly introduced the drag queens who are set to compete on the show. The eight Filipino drag queens who will be competing in Drag Den are O-A, Maria Cristiina, Aries Night, Barbie-Q, Shewarma, Pura Luka Vega, NAIA, and Lady Gagita.

“This is the Drag Lord speaking. I just want to inform you that after years and years and years of searching, I finally found it! But first as the Drag Dealer, you must bring them to me. Tell the Drag Runner to send these invitations. I really look forward to meeting them all,” she said in the trailer.

The show was first teased back in July 2021 and opened its auditions a month later to hopeful Filipino drag queens. After their announcement, the show seemed to halt their social media promotions last May and only came back in September.
