Drag Queen Pura Luka Vega was unbothered by persona non grata declaration of several cities and municipalities against him.
In a video posted on X, Pura was seen lip-syncing a Taylor Swift song while holding a portrait of himself wearing his controversial Jesus Christ costume.
He then gave a speech to his fans, addressing the declaration of persona non grata against him by the City of Manila; Bukidnon; Toboso; Nueva Ecija; Cagayan de Oro City; Cebu City; General Santos City; Occidental Mindoro; Coron Palawan; and Dinagat Islands.
Pura challenged other places in the Philippines to declare him persona non grata.
“Ito lang masasabi ko… simplehan lang natin ha? Lahat tayo makasalanan. Tama? Hindi tayo perpekto. Tama? Gayunpaman, do unto others what you want others to do unto you. Okay? Do not do unto others what you do not want others to do unto you. Golden rule lang po ‘yun,” said Pura.
“Para sa mga ibang lugar na gustong mag-persona non grata diyan, dagdagan niyo pa! Pakialam ko. Mayroon tayong separation ng church at ng state. ‘Yun lang po. Thank you po!” he added.

It can be remembered that Pura was facing criticisms on social media because of his ‘Ama Namin’ performance.
Aside from being declared as persona non grata, Pura was also facing two legal complaints from different Church Groups.
The drag queen had refused to apologize for his actions.
