There She Is, Miss Lez

Tired of boring old beauty contests? Yawning at the notion of world peace? Last week's seventh annual Miss Lez competition at Luna Lounge was a radical respite. There were swimsuit, interview, talent, and evening-gown portions of the competition, but contestants at straight pageants don't often endorse the preservation of eclectic queer culture as their platform. Our cameras were there to catch the dancing, the judging, and, of course, the crowning.
