So, You Think You're a Drag Queen @ Town Danceboutique: Episode 1 [video]

Town's monthly contest celebrating the aspirations of amateur drag queens in Washington continues with its biggest and best show yet

Town Danceboutique held its third installment in the monthly contest “So, You Think You’re a Drag Queen?” on Friday, March 5. Five contestants — Niki B. Sparks, Ginger, Anastasia, Kip Valentine and Pearly Gates — vied to be March’s bona fide drag queen.

The winner will advance to a grand finale of queen critiques later this year, where she’ll compete against the other monthly winners. Crazy competitions in this month’s edition include “Walk the Runway with a Can of Corn on Your Head” and contestants enhancing their outfits with odds and ends, then performing unrehearsed to a song chosen by hosts Shi-Queeta-Lee and Lena Lett.
