New York's Next Top Drag Queen ContestMetropolitan Room (34 West 22 Street, NYC) Map it $15
The sparkles are already flying as ten hard-working cross-dressers are going toe to toe in the two-week first round of competition of the 2nd annual “New York’s Next Top Drag Queen Contest.” The five-week juried affair climaxes on Monday May 5. Hosted this year by Holly Dae, the competish pits ten vigorously pre-screened drag queen artistes, who will be judged not by looks alone but by how well they sing and entertain.
Competing this year are these ten well-rounded singer-illusionists: Destiny Devine; Tina Bumer; Honey LaBronx; Crystal Demure; Sapphira Cristal; Flippe Kikee; Terra Grenade; Taylor Monroe; Sasha Pierce and Mica Salat.
It will be a seemingly unending parade of new outfits, special guests, surprise guest judges and a mystery judge whose identity will only be revealed at the contest’s over-the-top finale. The contest’s reining first Top Drag Queen is Titania Steele, who holds on to her throne until May 5.
