VIRGIN QUEENS! Straight boys compete to be the girl of your dreams
Topping last year's smash-hit competition, The 2nd Annual VIRGIN QUEENS Contest will see five new adventurous straight guys give their all to remake themselves, for one night, into "the girls of your dreams," in three elimination rounds of lipsynch glory.
(Yes really, straight guys. Fiancees, kids, football obsessions, the works. Let's call them, um, 'artistic.')
That would be...
Daniel as Miss DAHLIA DIXON!
Brian as Miss NAOMI GLITTER!
Mavrick as Miss SASHA LABIA!
Patrick as Miss SUZETTE SALOPE!
Ben as Miss TWINKLE STARR!
THIS IS NOT COMEDY DRAG. (Though much of it will be funny.) This is not Uncle Harry grabbing your aunt's necklace and wig to sashay around clumsily on Halloween. These five stalwarts have promised to put their all into selling their drag personae, in these three rounds of competition...
ONE: The down-and-dirty hot-mess get-em-aroused round!
TWO: The impersonate-your-favorite-diva sobbin' big-ballad round!
THREE: The high-energy, big-finish get-em-dancin' round!
...With the guys being eliminated one by one until New Orleans's new Virgin Queen is ultimately crowned!
At least the eliminated get to relax for the rest of the show.
Obviously het guys can't do it alone. Each Virgin Queen competitor has been assigned one of New Orleans most gorgeous queens as his drag mama: His coach, his mentor, his inspiration, his makeup instructor:
~ Miss DELICIOUS COX!
~ Miss TRU DEMILLE!
~ Miss MOANALOT FONTAINE!
~ Miss CATHY FOX!
~ Miss TAMI TARMAC!
Each of these glorious lilies will also perform, to show the youngsters how it's done! Though, really, the youngsters will probably be too busy changing their dresses and taking shots to watch their mamas work it.
And yes, AUDIENCE ACCLAIM COUNTS. But it can't be just audience acclaim, or the guy with the loudest friends wins. So we've assembled a top-notch panel of celebrity guest judges to comment and score:
~ Last year's winning drag mama, ZSA ZSA d'LAHOR!
~ Playwright & raconteur JIM FITZMORRIS!
~ Burlesque goddess BELLA BLUE!
~ Shadowbox director and last year's first runner-up, RICHARD MAYER!
~ HONEST-TO-GOD PRIZE MONEY FOR THE WINNER AND HIS MAMA ($300 minimum to him, $200 minimum to her), with decent consolation prizes along the way.
~ Guest performances including QUEERLESQUE! (Ace Falcor with Mel and Mister Fister), and VINSANTOS!
~ Master of Ceremonies MAGIC FINGERS MARTIN and his Lovely Assistant, dancer MATEO!
~ The glorious return of last year's winner, Miss SOPHIA MIA!
~ Special appearances by DENNIS MONN, REGINA ADAMS, and our Bert Parks, A.J. ALLEGRA!
~ Pre-show glam rock in the Lounge with BLEACHED PORCELAIN!
~ Afterparty at LA PENICHE!
~ And, um, DRINKS, as poured by the good staff of the ALLWAYS LOUNGE, and served by the budding sex goddesses of Bella Blue's BURLESQUE 101 class!
