A beauty pageant with a difference will hit the stage in Los Angeles’ Orpheum Theatre this Sunday, October 19, as a bevy of divas take part in the 6th annual Best In Drag show.
Best In Drag is Aid For AIDS' largest fundraiser, and features the very best in drag queen entertainment. You can expect all the glamour, the highest heels, the finest evening gowns, the most outrageous makeup in a show that has become a staple of hilarious entertainment.
This year’s judges include Charlie Sheen, Kathy Griffin, Jennifer Coolidge, Maria Menounos, John C. Reilly, and Holland Taylor, who must put all of their red carpet skills together to find the ultimate Best in Drag.
Last year, June Cleavage (Miss Connecticut), Pearl Necklace (Miss Georgia), Bella View (Miss New York), Hedda Hardahearin (Miss Oregon), Marium Rich (Miss Texas), and Velveeta Fondue (Miss Wisconsin) were all out to win, but in the end there could be only one – Bindi Dundat (Miss Minnesota) – who won the judges hearts with her Bollywood dance number… and an evening gown which combined a sparkling sari wrap complete with a headpiece modeled after the Taj Mahal.
Aid For AIDS was founded 25 years ago and prevents homelessness and hunger and improves the quality of life and independent living for those living with HIV/AIDS.
