IT was a night of full on carnival dazzle at the national Drag-Queen 2020 contest staged at Cartagena’s Wssell de Guimbarda sports pavillion on Monday night.
Contestants from Palmas de Gran Canaria, Madrid, Barcelona and Extremadura camped it up in fabulously lavish over-the-top costumes and towering platform shoes.
Perseidas was crowned this year’s top drag queen and Nebula was named first lady, both of them members of Cartagena carnival groups.
There was a drag theme to city’s carnival celebrations inauguration on Saturday. Culture councillor David Martinez got done up in dynamite drag queen gear to highlight the work they do and to call for “respect” for drag queen artists.
