17.5 Annual Mr. Lower East Side Pageant 10/22 8PM



The 17th(.5) annual Mr. Lower East Side

Has moved to QUEENS.


The Footlight bar in Ridgewood, Queens is honored to take up the reins and play host to the annual male beauty pageant hosted by the esteemed Art Star and living legend Reverend Jen (formerly of the Lower East Side). The madness ensues on Sat. Oct. 22nd at 8PM.

Suggested Donation $3


"Dudes will show up and compete in the following categories: A one minute talent competition, a swimsuit competition, evening wear and question & answer. Contestants must show up at 8PM to sign up!  All women and gay men are given ballots and invited to judge. The votes are then tabulated on the Ballsack 3000 and a winner is announced.


The 17.5 annual Pageant will prove to be an extra-glamorous extravaganza, similar to the Ms. Universe Pageant, if all the contestants were hairy and liked Budweiser. To compete in this cutthroat pageant, contestants need not live on the Lower East Side. (Because honestly, we're hosting it in Queens for god sake) They simply must possess qualities, which would make them the proper representative of the once spirit of that neighborhood. (What those qualities are, I am not quite sure of…) " - rev jen
