Queen of the Desert

Six drag queens compete for the title of Queen of the Desert, decided by a panel of local celebrities, while attendees vote for their Fan Favorite by donating dollar bills. This summer event is popular with locals and always sells out so get your tickets early!  The event is accessible to everyone in the community because of its low ticket price of $20 for general seating.

Friday, June 1st
The Palm Springs Cultural Center (Camelot Theaters)
Palm Springs, CA
7pm to 9pm

The Queen of the Desert competition is limited to contestants who have pledged to raise a minimum of $1,000 each to pre-qualify. This is a “celebrity judged” competition where the focus is to have fun, entertain the crowd and raise money for Desert AIDS Project’s HIV/AIDS services. There is also Fan Favorite voting which is your opportunity to raise funds from the attendees and win Fan Favorite.

Applications will be auditioned and will be notified by mid-April if they are to be a contestant. There is also a required rehearsal period the week of the event and Jeffrey Drew of LA’s “Best in Drag’ will be the director who will assist you in staging and production. You are required to provide your own costumes, make-up and production needs.

Each contestant will be asked to compete in resort wear/bathing suit and evening gown segments as well as perform. Please limit each song/performance to three to four minutes.

Awards are given in the following categories:
Queen of the Desert
Fan Favorite
Best Bathing Costume
Best Performance
Best Evening Gown
