Eight talented Brisbane drag performers will compete in the Miss Sportsman Hotel drag pageant at the Brisbane venue this weekend.
The Sportsman Hotel is proudly Brisbane’s Home of Drag and their annual contest is on again this Saturday night (November 13).
Katya Lou-King, Thalia Novella, Henny Spaghetti, Elle De Flower, Enigma Popstar, Penelope Cruises, Anya Bike and Wilhelmina Westwood will all compete for the title of Miss Sportsman Hotel 2021.
This year’s Miss Sporties theme is “Seven Deadly Sins” and all the action kicks off from 10pm.
Queensland drag legend Wanda D’Parke will host the pageant and crown the winner, as decided by Sporties’ panel of distinguished guest judges.
You can also support your favourite performer now by liking and sharing their poster on the venue’s Facebook page to help win them the People’s Choice Award.
Last year, Sporties had to postpone the Miss Sportsman Hotel contest due to COVID-19.
Then in February, drag queen Justine Deeva was belatedly crowned Miss Sportsman Hotel 2020. Justine is returning to the Sporties stage for special performances on Saturday night.

Host Wanda D’Parke warmly welcomed all eight competitors and urged everyone to support drag across Queensland.
“It takes a lot of effort and guts to put a frock on, put a face on and get up on the stage,” Wanda said.
“Make sure when you’re out and about and they’re performing near you, buy a ticket and go to their shows. You’ll get some fabulous entertainment.
“Drag is also in regional Queensland as well as in the big cities.
“If you see a showgirl on stage, please support them and applaud them. Please appreciate the effort that goes in to what they do.”
The Miss Sportsman Hotel 2021 drag pageant kicks off at 10pm on Saturday (November 13) at The Sportsman Hotel. Visit Sporties’ Facebook page or new-look website to find out more about what’s on at the venue.
