WGN: It's undies and drag kings this Saturday

Thu 16 Jul 2009 In: New Zealand Daily News View at Wayback

Two unique parties in Wellington this Saturday will feature gender-bending fun, DJs and prizes. Club Ivy on Dixon Steet will host its 'Winter Strip' party from 10pm, with shows from visiting Auckland divas Nikita and Dallas Vixon. "Undies are definitely a must," says the Club Ivy team. "Join us for a night of tucks, undies and boxer boys. We have prizes for best undies!" Meanwhile at the Watusi bar on Edward Street, an amateur drag king and 'genderbending' party will kick off at 9pm. "It'll be a night of dragtastic madness," promises organisers Dorothy and Kirsten. Girls as guys, guys as girls and everything in-between. "Be enchanted by mysterious gents serenading you with winning smiles and grinding moves," say the drag king contest crew. "Get your genderfuck on and dance along to the unwieldy digits of DJ Duckling and the laydees from women's night 'Finger on the Trigger'! And then when you think it's all over, think again. The rock 'n roll catastrophes of Volcana and Newtown will put you in a winter twister!"
