The first week of October is such a wonderful time of year here in Los Angeles: There's the midnight screening of Clue at the Nuart, there are flea markets to raid for Halloween costumes, and then... there's Best in Drag!
Best in Drag Show, the spectacular annual fundraiser for Aid for AIDS at the Orpheum in downtown L.A. on October 6, has announced that Emmy Award winner Holland Taylor (Two and A Half Men), Golden Globe nominee Mireille Enos (The Killing), Alan Ruck (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off), Bellamy Young (Scandal), and Kathy Kinney (The Secret Life of the American Teenager) will be part of the celebrity judging panel for the show’s 11th anniversary. Also joining: Melanie Griffith and Glee's Dot Marie Jones!
Event co-founder Patrick Rush will be hosting the show once again, and Jeffrey Drew, long-time star throughout the history of the show, will direct, choreograph and helm this year's festivities.
“Behind the sparkles, spangles, and spandex is a great cause – providing housing and food for those who are devastated with HIV/AIDS and poverty,” says Terry Goddard II, Executive Director of Alliance for Housing and Healing. Aid for AIDS is a vital program of Alliance for Housing and Healing.
The 2013 contestants include Sash Carl (Miss California: Beverly Center), D'Nez Westmoreland (Miss Michigan: Electra Caprice Riviera), Stephen Molinaro (Miss New Jersey: Vava Fanculo), Mike Cativo (Miss Puerto Rico: Mimi E), Dajuan Powns (Miss Washington DC: Ciera Lyon), and Aron Ross (Miss Wisconsin: Misty O'Portunity).
