  • The flamboyant extravaganza will present more than 20 outrageously attired drag artistes

Following the success of last year's edition, Torremolinos is gearing up for its spectacular Drag Queen Gala, which will take place on Saturday 3 March. The flamboyant extravaganza will be held in Plaza La Nogalera from 8.30pm until midnight and will present more than 20 outrageously attired drag artistes.

The drag queens, which will come from all over Spain, will be competing in three different categories and the winner of each will be invited to participate in the town's Gay Pride parade in June. There is a cash incentive also, with prizes of between 250 and 1,200 euros.

The jury, composed of professionals related to the fashion industry in Torremolinos, will select the winners based on originality, imagination and the ease and grace with which the drag queen is able to walk in their outfit. Last year's event, which attracted over 4,000 people, presented some of the gaudiest costumes imaginable and this year promises to be equally as spectacular. Lacquered wigs, shocking make-up, ostentatious costumes and fast-fire, brazen humour is certain to make this a night to remember.

The event, which is organised by the Gay Traders Association of Torremolinos (ACOGAT) and the town hall, will be hosted by the outrageous drag artiste, Kelly Rollers.
