It’s pageant season in the Cape, and Mr and Miss Gay Retreat is taking place tonight at Grassy Park Civic Centre where 25 contestants will go head to head for the title.
Pageant organiser Dino Ensil says the pageant is celebrating its 19th year and will show off all 19 queens who reigned over the years.
Reigning queen Crystal Diamond and king Gavin will hand over their crowns to their successors in a lavish ceremony. Categories include evening wear and swimwear.
Entry is R60. Doors open at 7pm and the show starts at 8.30pm. Bring your own platters. There's no corkage fee.
