----/ Event Description /-----------------------------------------------

DragStrip presents the 11th annual San Francisco Drag King Contest,  
The largest drag king event in the Nation -- and according to the SF  
Weekly "A Parade of Gender-Bending Eye Candy." The internationally  
acclaimed outlandish celebration of sex and drag and rock&roll brings  
out the animal in the true sense as it is a benefit for PAWS (Pets  
Are Wonderful Support). The Contest, which has been captivating  
audiences with potent performances for 10 years, will be held on  
Thursday Night, August 17, 8pm to 3am at the legendary DNA Lounge.  
Biceps and trousers bulging, the contestants will turn you on with  
their outrageous theatrical styles where lipsynch, live rock, fetish,  
burlesque, hip-hop, rap, interpretive dance and schtick meet and  
occasionally beat meat.

"This party is like a mash-up of the Miss America Pageant, American  
Idol, Halloween and a Monster Truck Show except all the talent is in  
Drag! We have wrestlers, contortionists, Elvis, Prince and Billy Idol  
Impersonators, Rappers, Dandies, Pimps, Leather Daddys, Hillbillies,  
Homo-erotic Jocks, Clowns, and their female counterparts. If that  
isn't mindboggling enough at times it is difficult to tell the  
performers from the audience, who dress to impress for the occasion."  
said impresario Fudgie Frottage.

The Dragtastic Duo of FUDGIE FROTTAGE "The Man With The Biggest Balls  
in Show Business" and RUSTY HIPS who holds every Drag King title in  
SF, preside over the festivities as Master of Ceremonies. The star- 
studded event showcases: JAY WALKER, last year's winner of the solo  
king category with his flawless Prince impersonation, The MOMMA'S  
BOYZ, last year's troupe winner who's live rap and outrageous hip hop  
dancers wowed the crowd, HOWIE WEENIS SFDK6, ARTY FISHAL SFDK3, THE  
INDRA, cabaret chanteuse extraordinairre, BURLYQ BEAUTIES CHERRY LIX  
& The TWILIGHT VIXEN REVUE, rock band, PEPPERSPRAY "a combination of  
The Spice Girls and The Sex Pistols" according to the SF Examiner,  
and more -- the contestants!

Contestants are judged on talent, creativity, studliness/sex appeal,
