Introducing the FRNY Drag Royale for Kings, Queens, and In-Betweens.
This amateur-ish drag competition, hosted by Front Runners Miss Dakota Sue will have you cheering, laughing, and gagging for your fellow FRNY drag competitors! We'll also have great raffle prizes, sexy bartenders, and talented acts all lined up! Email us with questions or if you'd like to compete, volunteer, or donate a raffle prize: GayGames@frny.org.
Many talented Front Runners will be taking the stage, with the audience ultimately voting for the winner of the GRAND PRIZE!
The event will be held on Friday, May 31, 2019 in the Fellowship Hall at Rutgers Church! Doors will open to the 5th Floor of Rutgers (236 W 73rd Street) at 6:30pm and the show will begin promptly at 7:00pm. Use the form below to purchase your tickets. No paper tickets will be issued; advance ticket purchases will be listed at the door on event night. You may print your payment receipt as proof of purchase.
Interested in Competing?
This 2nd annual FRNY drag competition is for all drag performers be it your regular Tuesday drag routine or your second or third ever drag performance. Competitors are required to do one drag performance: be it comedy, live vocals, dance, or lip sync. If you’re not fully confident on your drag, never fear, your hosts Dakota Sue will be on hand to help out interested competitors. Email us with questions or if you'd like to compete: GayGames@frny.org.
Audience Rules of Engagement
Participants will be competing for your praise, your adoration, and your…. tickets? Yes, each act will have a fish bowl for vote tickets. The audience, after each act and at the end of the competition, will have an opportunity to allocate their tickets to the act (or acts) they enjoyed most. Who says you can only have one favorite anyway?
SO HOW DO I GET TICKETS?
Your entry ticket = 10 tickets ($20)
Buy a drink voucher, get 2 tickets ($5)
Purchase tickets directly = (10 for $10; 25 for $20)
WHAT IF I DON'T LIKE ANYONE?
Well we don’t like you either….oh, and your vote tickets double as raffle tickets so you can just win great prizes instead. But we’ll still judge you for not at least voting for one king or queen who worked to make your evening special.
CAN I USE VOTING TICKETS FOR DRINKS?
You can try…but the bartenders will likely mock you. No. Raffle tickets and vote tickets are one and the same. Drink vouchers are different.
HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO VOTE?
Last call for the raffle prizes will be before the final competitive act. The last call for voting will then happen during the final host number. From there, we’ll announce our raffle winners, crown our winner, and continue out to the bars to celebrate!
