Drag queens and TikTokers: queer Fijian influencers challenging traditional notions of masculinity

09/11/2022 | The Guardian

Sevuloni Lule, a professional dancer from Lautoka City in western Fiji, is causing a stir on Shenzen’s club scene in China. Or rather, his drag alter ego – Savanaah Marco LaVulva – is. By day, Lule performs Pacific dances at Window of the World, a kitschy theme park in Shenzen’s Nanshan district. At night, he puts on a wig and makeup to transform into LaVulva, a fierce drag queen who lip-syncs to Rihanna and Beyoncé at the city’s LGBTQ+ friendly bars and nightclubs. “She’s a music video vixen come to life, she brings a powerful energy to the stage,” says Lule, 29, of LaVulva, who is inspired by 90s and early 2000s divas.
