    I’ll start by saying that I have nothing invested in this year’s competition and have no reason to promote or talk down about any performers. But if it is really true that participating is more important than winning, then one should perhaps allow oneself to overlook the obvious politics involved in choosing this year’s winners. And I don’t mean the fact that they are all gay invididuals, as this probably wasn’t a factor. But the performer who had the BY FAR best number did not win, and the winner this year was, in all honesty, probably not even really in the top five in terms of the performance itself (although it was a lovely number, but not a winning number). Also several of the best performers were not even recognized at all, and instead someone who was just average won the second runner up. And like last year, the clear winner of the competition (or at least, the performer with the best performance by far) was only awarded second place. Perhaps less biased judges would be a good idea for next year’s festival, so that winners are chosen by the evaluation of that year’s performance, and not their “lifetime achievement”. Just a thought…

    Anna Fur Laxis was by far and away the best act and should have won by a clear margin. The winner was not a bad act, but was by no means outstanding either. In fact, Miss Indigo Blue was no better or worse than many typical acts you see on burlesque nights at any given weekend in any average club night up and down the country. I don’t want to spoil her moment, but the accolade should have gone to a beter performer.
