Logan Hardcore is even good up close!

Logan Hardcore is even beautiful up close!

On September 6, all the professional sometimes-ladies put on their best finery and walked the runway at the Ice Palace at the Cherry Grove Hotel in Cherry Grove, Fire Island, New York, and once again, my camera and I were there!

I actually promised to post the pics in my post about the Miss Fire Island contest, but I got busy. Whoopsie. Anyway, here are the highlights, but don’t forget to check out my Flickr album for the full set. (Oh, and if that’s not enough for you, everyone else’s Miss Fire Island pictures on Flickr are also pretty fantastic.)

The oldest living Miss Fire Island winners, Charity Charles (1967) and Rita George (1968) kick off the fun.

Things sometimes get weird

When you glimpse Porsche watching the perfrmers, she’s always smiling. Not true of everyone

For example, get a load of Logan throwing shade from backstage

This was some of the most perfect drag makeup I've ever seen. It was so flawless, in person, she looked virtual

More hilarious attitude from Logan (And who could blame her? That green dress was hypnotic.)

This gorgeous creature looked like the love child of Adele and John Lithgow‘s trans character from The World According to Garp

Another spectacularly beautiful girl

Eventually, thanks to a bit too much fun, a lot of sun, loads of amazing performances, and some very attentive servers, it gets to be nap time

  1. Great pics! Wow – you really get around! When I lived in NYC I never, ever got to go to Fire Island but had many, many friends who did… I think I was never invited because I may have been “too straight”. LOL

  6. I’ve been to a couple local drag shows and they are the BEST. So much fun. I love Queens…they have so much confidence. It’s mind boggling.

  7. this is awesome. I used to go to drag night in St Louis when I lived there and even there it was soo exciting u could feel the difference in the air — and the ladies (“ladies”) were —MAN! —always larger than life!! I never could understand how some of them (some of the really larger-than-life [lit]) were so flexible, nimble—light on their feet. one girl, Dietta Coke, she could stretch all the way back and touch the floor...in HEELS!
