BEHIND THE SCENES: Manila Luzon’s Photo Shoot With Shirtless Philly Models

Garrett Matthew — photographer to the Gayborhood drag queen community stars — recently released a sexy shot from a photo session he did with RuPaul’s Drag Race alum Manila Luzon when she was in town for “Battle of the Seasons” earlier this month. The provocative pic shows Luzon cradling shirtless local model Billy Cavallo‘s head in her hands, while Cody Allen — also sans shirt — lounges dreamily on top of them.

I was surprised Matthew only revealed one photo from the shoot, which I know must have been good for at least a thousand images. So I asked him if he’d share any behind-the-scenes shots on G Philly. Check out the two he sent me below, each with a little back story from Matthew.

"Cody (on the floor) said his back needed to be cracked, so I suggested that Billy try stepping on it."

"Manila was taking photos of billy to send to her boyfriend."
