While the International Association of Athletics Federation is all in a tizzy with respect to gender ambiguity, the folks at Thai restaurant Mango Tree have decided to celebrate the issue with what they promise to be “the campest beauty contest of the year.” This annual event takes place on the 13th of September (6pm to late) and will showcase contestants from across the globe as they show their stuff (well some of it might be neatly tucked away for the occasion) in front of a panel of VIP and sleb judges (no word on whom they might be yet). Contest categories include sexiest swimwear and best evening dress.
Tickets for Lady Boy 2009 cost £15 in advance or £18 at the door. The price includes Thai canapés. Mango Tree is located at 46 Grosvenor Place (SW1X 7EQ). Contact Mango Tree at 0207 823 1888 to book. Visit www.mangotree.org.uk for more details.
