The Carnival drag queens of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
Introducing the Drag Queen Gala
The Carnival of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is one of the most famous Carnivals in all of Spain. Taking place annually in February and/or March, it's overshadowed by the likes of Rio de Janeiro and Venice, but is no less worthy of your time.
Yet of its several events, none is more captivating than the Drag Queen Gala. Are you ready for this?
This isn't your local cabaret drag show. We're talking some of the best drag performers around, with budgets that drag dreams are made of. Makeup at its peak, headpieces that would be the envy of any royal, towering stilettos—whatever you've ever wanted to see at a drag show (and what you could never have conceived of), these queens bring it.
But words just can't do them justice. For an out-of-this-world experience that's really only as far as the Canary Islands, click through the following gallery to marvel at the Carnival drag queens of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
