Luz Violeta is the stage name of Sebastián Aguirre,[1] a Chilean drag queen, best known for winning the first season of The Switch Drag Race, the Chilean version of Drag Race.

She later returned for the second season, quitting the competition due to differences with the producers, placing 9th.

Drag Name Origin

She chose her drag name because, in the chinese chromotherapy, the violet light is the one that transmutes, just like she does, from man to woman. She most likely experienced treatment with chromotherapy.[2]
