Taking a Drag in Arlington
Freddie's Beach Bar hosts this year's Miss Gay Arlington drag pageant
You won't see drag queens in swimsuits at the Miss Gay Arlington pageant.
''There are several queens who God blessed with an extremely good body, and many of their numbers incorporate swimsuit-like attire,'' says Daniel Hays, promoter of the pageant, which takes place Saturday, April 28, at Freddie's Beach Bar. But like most drag contests, Miss Gay Arlington celebrates those who like to put on extra layers of costumes and makeup to create a female persona -- the focus isn't the body.
