I Mean Sir
Everyone likes an excuse to get dressed up, right?
Well, what’s a better excuse to get dressed up in your best formal fashion than a talent contest? And, since we here in the city are usually pretty civic minded, this isn’t just any talent contest. It’s also a benefit for PAWS, a local, volunteer run organization that, among other things, provides support to people living with AIDS and other disabling illnesses through the joy of animal companions.
So, go get yourself gussied up. Don your tiaras and pearls, dig out your leather and lace, and think about using those socks for something other than your feet, because it’s time for the 9th annual Drag King Contest, presented by Drag Strip. From suits to jocks, hunks to punks contestants of all stripes will be judged on “talent, creativity, orginality, humor, make-up/facial hair and fashion”.
The best part is, for the gals who may wonder how ‘the other half’ lives, you don’t have to bite your lip in jealous agony. No! You can participate. There’s a drag-king workshop scheduled before the contest that will help king you up and teach you how to strut your stuff.

When: Thursday, August 19th, 8pm until 2am, show at 9pm
How much: $15 – $35
