Queen of the Divas
Four drag queens strutted the catwalk last Saturday evening at Hotel Molokai, vying for Miss Queen Diva and Miss Princess Diva of Molokai’s third annual Ultimate Diva Pageant. Jokes, diva attitude and Molokai pride flowed, with two local contestants joined by two visiting divas showing off what they got.
Molokai-born participant, Bubbalicious – aka Lee Hanohano – won the coveted Miss Queen Diva crown, followed by Diamond Armani of Oahu as Miss Princess Diva. Kylee West-Williams landed in third, and Molokai’s own Jaela Jamez-Dereon came in fourth.
From bikinis to ball gowns to complete animal print, the pageant is all about costume changes. In between contestants, an enthusiastic audience was entertained by The Girly Show, a popular group of transgender performers from Maui.
