Miss Ribena hosts ski party

Thu 7 Sep 2006 In: New Zealand Daily News

Auckland drag icon, Miss Ribena, hosted an alpine bash for gay skiers last night, bringing some “fabulosity” to Queestown's annual Gay Ski Week reports the Southland Times. The self-confessed “over-the-top, high camp, good time” entertainer took just two hours to don her make-up, jewels and glitter for the Ski Bum party, which featured Auckland's Family Bar resident DJ Starli. The Queenstown Gay Ski Week is the Southern Hemisphere's largest LGBT party and attracts skiers, snowboarders and revellers from Australia and the Northern Hemisphere. The event is based at the Mercure Grand Hotel St Moritz and skiers are transferred in to the slopes in the ‘gay ski bus.'     Ref: Southland Times (d)
