HAG THAT FAG
For the second year running, the girls who didn't recoil when their best friends came out to them on the playground (and, in many cases, opted to throw a party instead), get their due when they face off in the Miss Fag Hag Pageant. And the competition is fierce. The contestants include "Miss Midtown" Chastity Neutze, a dresser at Mamma Mia!; "Miss Bushwick" Crystal Clements, who wrote a triple-X parody of Who's the Boss?; and "Miss Astoria" Dana Craig, who says about her gay, "He is the Blythe Danner to my Molly Shannon." Mel & El preside over the shenanigans, with categories including "Sassy question and answer" and "Presenting her gay in a swimsuit," with performances by musical theater vets and a local RuPaul's Drag Race contestant Sahara Davenport. The decision-makers include John Cameron Mitchell, ultimate fag hag Caroline Rhea, and our own Michael Musto.
