Throughout the summer of 2008, Drag Queens from all over UK were battling out (yes you heard correct) for their chance to win in the heats and compete in the Opportunity Frocks Grand Final. The winners of each Heat, then travelled to Glasgow to compete in the Grand Final hosted in Arta, Glasgow on November 29th November 2008.
The premise of the show was quite obvious; the Drag Queens were judged on three rounds: Hollywood heroine, Swim-wear and Cabaret performance. A group of celebrity judges awarded points for outrageousness, personality and talent and after considerable nail-biting and some superb "filler" entertainment the winner was crowned.
Now its Irelands Biggest Drag competition and in its 9th Year. The show will take place at the Belfast Empire on Saturday, 12/11/16. All profits are donated to Belfast Pride Festival
Opportunity Frocks: Grand Final
Round 1: Talent: In previous years contestants have been asked to sit with Tina and have a cuppa. This year, we are inviting our Queens to entertain us with a hidden talent. Our judges will have BGT style buzzers who can terminate an act on the spot.
Round 2: Musical Hair: Entrants get to play the child hood favourite game of musical chairs. Whilst this sounds an easy feat, the queens are dressed to the nines in their most fabulous outfits Watch as wigs fly and queens fall as the game gets super competitive. May the best queen win!
Round 3: Show Stopper: Entrants will grace the stage and entertain the audience with their best routine. A true Drag queen spectacular!
