A DATE has been set for Torremolinos’s annual Drag Queen Gala. 

The Costa del Sol event will be held on Saturday, February 15 at the Prince of Asturias Auditorium from 8.30 pm and be part of the LGTBI 2019 Carnival. 

The date and time were revealed by the president of the Association of Gay Traders of Torremolinos (ACOGAT), Antonio Dominguez, and Councillor for Equality, Nicolas de Miguel, at a press conference where the poster of the event was presented. 

The event, organized by ACOGAT with the collaboration of the Town Council, will be presented by Luis Rollán and Amor Romeira, and will feature performances by artist Divino, boyband Butchqueens and singer Dácil Suárez, who opened the Drag Carnival Gala of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria in 2019 – one of the biggest and most famous such festivals in Europe.

Nicolás de Miguel said that he expected this year’s event to be more colourful and popular than ever. He added: “We all need colour, visibility, diversity, freedom, tolerance and more activities like these. “ The department of equality has made a great commitment to this, ensuring that Torremolinos is always leading and is at the forefront of LGTBI rights.” 

Just about any drag artist can take part in the gals, whether they are from associations, clubs, commercial establishments and even on a private basis. 

During the contest Drag Queen Torremolinos 2019, the 1st and 2nd Lady, Drag Fantasy and Drag Sympathy will be chosen. 

The jury, made up of people related to the fashion and art sector, will value the originality and fantasy, the quality and attractiveness of the design and the mobility, naturalness and grace of the candidate.
