SF Drag King Contest
Saturday Aug 17, 2013 9:00pm-:00am in San Francisco
Fudgie Frottage & DragStrip Productions present the 18th Annual San Francisco Drag King Contest. This "only in San Francisco" annual event is a sizzling summer night of swaggering cockitude exhibiting the Bay Area’s renown cornucopia of Sex and Drag and Rock & Roll. The eagerly-awaited contest packs the proscenium with primping, preening and "packing" performers of all persuasions, eager to crown the 2013 SF Drag King.

This year, in celebration of our 18th star-studded year The San Francisco Drag King Contest will feature a Cavalcade of Kings -- performances by past SF Drag King winners including favorites Rusty Hips (SFDK '02 & Mr. Trannyshack '02), Leigh Crow (Vice Palace, artist formerly known as Elvis Herselvis), Jay Walker (SFDK '05 & Mr. Trannyshack '05 performing his flawless Prince impersonation), old skool rappers The Momma's Boyz (SFDK '05), Arty Fishal (SFDK '98) DeeDee Luxe (from NY’s The Box, Fassbender's "Shame" and Joaquin Phoenix's "The Immigrant"), The Indra (Burly-Q Chanteuse) Fella-Fem (SFDK '08), Hamm Graham, (SFDK '10) GQ Society (SFDK '11) Tommy Salami (Salami & Sons), Cohen Brothers (SFDK '12), Kit Tapata (Mr. Gay '11) and more TBA. They all will be on board to keep the testosterone-fueled show pumping. This year’s DJ’s include: Olga T, Downtown Donna, and DJ’s DIE aka Simone & Davide.

Most of all, the Drag King Contest would not be complete without the contestants! Contestants are judged on talent, creativity, studliness, sex appeal, originality, humor, make-up/facial hair and fashion. We are always looking for contestants. If you think you have what it takes to "measure up", email [email protected] before July 15, 2013. This year our illustrious panel of nationally known celebrity judges, includes: San Francisco Drag King Contest titleholders, Rusty Hips, SFDK '02; Alotta Boutte of Beach Blanket Babylon, Shack "The Shack" Shackwell (Laurie Bushman), and Anna Conda - the former "Miss Trannyshack" of Charlie Horse.
