This year’s Best in Drag Show returns to the Orpheum Theater on Sunday, October 1st.
“Best in Drag Show” is a beauty pageant parody in which six contestants compete in all the usual drag pageant categories: evening gown, question and answer, talent and swimsuit.
The event benefits this Alliance for Housing & healingan organization dedicated to preventing homelessness and hunger for men, women, children and families living with HIV/AIDS throughout Los Angeles County.
The evening features over-the-top costumes, hilarious comedy and imaginative talent performances.
Hosted by Patrick Rush and Kay Sedia, the show is produced by a team of volunteers who donate their time to support the Alliance for Housing & healing.
The Best in Drag Show began in 1989 as “Battle for the Tiara,” a small, annual party and AIDS fundraiser created by Alexis Pittman.
Filled with outlandish characters, over-the-top performances, lavish costumes and celebrity judges, Best in Drag Show embodies the ideals of humor, love and dedication, continuing the work that began all those years ago in a small apartment in West Hollywood.
