Fudgie Frottage & DragStrip Productions present the 18th Annual San Francisco Drag King Contest. This "only in San Francisco" annual event is a sizzling summer night of swaggering cockitude exhibiting the Bay Area’s renown cornucopia of Sex and Drag and Rock & Roll. The eagerly-awaited contest packs the proscenium with primping, preening and "packing" performers of all persuasions, eager to crown the 2013 SF Drag King.

The San Francisco Drag King Contest has evolved into a huge community event where artists of all disciplines, including gender illusionists, film stars, burlesque legends and more, leave their mark on the stage like dogs in heat. Expect to see everything from lip-synching to mud wrestling to "other talents" that might make even the savviest viewer of cable access TV blush with delight. The show is produced and co-emceed by impresario Fudgie Frottage, aka: 'The Man with the Biggest Balls in Show Business.' Sister Roma, one of the most outspoken and universally recognized members of the Sisters Of Perpetual Indulgence, once again offers divine inspiration and sexually-charged perspiration as co-emcee.
