“The San Francisco Drag King Contest is a mash-up of the Miss America Pageant, American Idol, Halloween and a Monster Truck Show,” states impresario Fudgie Frottage. “We have every kind of drag from suits to fruits; studs to puds — Everything from Elvis impersonators to Leather Daddies, Wrestlers, Contortionists, Hillbillies, Clowns, Jocks, and their female counterparts. It’s a mind-boggling, dress-to-impress occasion, where part of the fun is just trying tell the performers and audience members apart.”
