Glamour, Bling & 'Cha-Ching'

My friend Garth Raleigh at Gay Archipelago sent me this pressrelease for Miss Wigstock, 2013


"Did you know that January is Drag History Month? This month-long celebration salutes the richness of drag culture and pays tribute to the courageous queens & kings who have fought for equality while inspiring, educating & entertaining us all.

As part of this celebration, the Gay Archipelago pays homage to these pioneering members of our Community with the 5th ‘Miss WigStock’ Show & Contest in Second Life to be held Sunday, January 27, 2013 at 12pm (noon) slt.

We're inviting ALL members of the LGBT Community who are interested in competing for the title, the Crown and the cash prize of $L15,000 to choose a song to perform and gather their best Drag outfit (complete with wig of choice). No worries - the great Oliver Elton will be helping contestants with their sets and their steps. There'll also be a prize of $L5,000 to the 1st runner-up and a purse (pink fur-lined) of $L2,500 to the 2nd runner up - All chosen by a panel of 3 independent judges looking for appearance, performance and originality.

Contact contestant coordinator - Rico (ricogenu.resident) in SL before the cutoff date of January 16th, 2013, to get your name in the hat.

Audience members........prepare for the wildest, most fun show and contest to be presented on the main stage at Theatre on the Hill. Come root for your favorite Diva as he/she struts the stage and showers you with the attentions that only a true Diva can. There'll be surprise special guest-appearances, over-the-top musical performances / sets and or course.........smiles and laughter for all!

YOU can help get the word out about this unique and FUN upcoming celebration within the SL LGBT Community. Here's a texture poster for you.

There is also a Miss Wigstock Info-giver kiosk available for your sim, club or venue that will distribute a highly-entertaining guide to 'how to be a Diva in the Wigstock Contest' at no cost when touched. Please contact either Othon Weiland, publicity, or myself to get yours today!

With champaign dreams and rhinestone stilettos,

Garth Raleigh
Lead, Gay Archipelago"
