Tina Burner! I don't know how she's going to get up the stairs of all those HK walkups in that gown, but that's her job.
First runner-up was Brenda Dharling, a sexy gal in chiffon and sparkles, while second runner up was Pixie Aventura, a spitfire with Chita Rivera lashes and a shiny beehive. Meanwhile, Tina wore a swimsuit made of condoms, and for her talent did both male and female parts in a way I can't even describe. She earned that tiara!
Peppermint flawlessly hosted the glamorous and slick pageant at New World Stages (which I helped judge) and Shane Terenzi produced it as a fundraiser for AIDS Lifecycle.
Last year's winner, Bootsie LeFaris gave up her crown, but not without a dazzling performance of "The Gods of Nubia."
And then winners, runners-up and fans climbed the stairs of Therapy for the after party. They managed!
