It all started when Pan Pan won a drag and lip sync competition to attend a Lady Gaga concert in New York; the fantasy, the liberation. Since then, Pangina Heals (aka Pan Pan Narkprasert) has become Asia’s most famous Drag Queen, taking her Drag Queen show worldwide whilst also co-hosting Drag Race Thailand, a sister series to RuPaul's Drag Race.
Pan’s Pan’s talk is about having the ability to transform yourself. Drawing from personal experience, Pan Pan shares 5 tips that have helped to propel Pangina Heals to international stardom: 1) Absorb Like a Sponge, 2) Hone your Craft, 3) Preparation, 4) Professionalism and 5) Let it go and forgive yourself.
Life hasn’t always been easy for Pan who was a victim of both bullying and cyberbullying at school. Although still receiving frequent threats via mobile phone even today, Pangina Heals is a veritable ambassador of Thailand and the Kingdom’s LGBTQ community.
Pan Pan is also a dynamic fundraiser, actively supporting charities and NGOs such as The Love Foundation; a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to fighting AIDS/HIV infection in Thailand, the Camillian Home for Children and the borders of Thailand, home to the children of illegal immigrants of Burma.
