SERIOUS UPDATE: Due to popular demand from entrants, we've moved the date of the pageant to June 3, so it will now kick-off Utah Pride Weekend. Update your calendars because you won't want to miss it.--- (The post below was updated 5-17-2010, 4 p.m)

It was inevitable like Ricky Martin coming out of the closet: City Weekly will host our first-ever Drag Queen competition in celebration of fierceness, fishnets, falsies and the Utah Pride Festival 2010.---

Details are still being arranged--we'll release them as soon as they are settled--but we know this much so far:

  • There will be prizes.
  • The competition will be June 3, so entrants must be available that night. 
  • The winner will ride with CW in some fabulous vehicle during the Pride Parade June 6, so entrants must be available to do that.
  • The winner will hold her title for one year, during which CW will hype her fabulousness while she helps hype our special events hosted by CW's The Word.
  • We haven't ruled out including Drag Kings, but we'll measure interest on that before deciding--so apply!

It'll be naughty. It'll be awesome. It'll be a drag show like only CW could put together.

To enter or ask questions, contact by May 20. Please include three photos, a short biography, and a video performance (if available). Preliminary contestants will be notified if they made it into the pageant by Friday, May 21.
