DAME IMFALA

HE/SHE/THEY

Dame Imfala derives her name from her favourite music project Tame Impala (surprise!). She’s Royalty from Imphal, the only contemporary Manipuri drag queen in the club scene. Born a Gemini, Imfala is a versatile and youthful queen. Owing to her background in fashion studies and performing arts, she likes to serve lewks and brings it to the ball every time. Her aesthetic is supremely fashionable and feminine, often fascinating.

Dame Imfala debuted at a gender sensitisation event in 2018 and has moved on to perform at clubs and turned heads at Fashion Weeks. Belonging to a small town in the North Eastern region of India, she continues to fight against racial discrimination/tokenism in the LGBTQ circle with her demure nature and power-packed performances.
