On Saturday, the gay community is crowning the fairest in the land.

Now in its 8th year, this annual event brings together the LGBTI community and showcases why Cape Town is considered the most gay-friendly city in Africa.

There are 13 beauties vying for the title of Miss Gay Western Cape 2016.

Last year’s queen Camille Von Zuush will be on hand to crown her successor.

Entertainment will be provided by the likes of X-Factor South Africa winners Four and SA’s Got Talent finalist Manila Von Teez.

Tickets have been selling fast this week, and are available from Computicket at R150.

The show starts at 8pm and is taking place at the Joseph Stone Auditorium, Klipfontein Road, Athlone.
