SAN FRANCISCO, CA"”Dragstrip announces the 10th annual San Francisco Drag King Contest. The Left Coast's sexiest, genderbending event will take place on August 18th at the fabulous DNA lounge. One of the country's premiere drag king contests, this beloved, one-of-a-kind, kinky party is sure to thrill and spill! Expect all kinds of kings from rough trade to well-dressed dandies and blue-collar butches to prissy pomo-homos. Biceps and trousers bulging, the contestants will turn you on with their outrageous performance styles where lipsynch, live rock, fetish, burlesque, hip-hop, rap, interpretive dance and schtick meet and occasionally beat meat.
"The San Francisco Drag King Contest is truly one of the hottest events of the year," says MC Fudgie Frottage. "These kings reign supreme. Every year the show keeps getting bigger and better. Drag king aficionados will go NUTS over all the sexy, studly, and/or silly talent."
