Pageantry of Pride – Contestants to compete next weekend for four Capital Pride titles – By Doug Rule

Two years ago, a drag king was crowned Mr. Capital Pride, and drag queens generally reign as Miss Capital Pride. But either contest ”is certainly open to anyone, male or female, who wants to compete for that title,” says Robert York. As long as they play the part of mister or miss. ”And as long as they’re United States citizens over the age of 21,” York teases.

As head of Cocker Productions, York puts on the Pride pageants, which also includes contests for Mr. and Ms. Capital Pride Leather. He’s actually been helping out with the pageants for over 10 years, counting when he served as director of Capital Pride.
