One of San Diego's most anticipated drag competitions of the year is fast approaching - with 2018 being an All Stars Edition! Check out our profiles of the 5 contestants as the show approaches!
(Editor's note: "Tantrums and Tiaras: Battle of the Bar Queens All-Stars 2018" will take place on Sunday, Feb. 18 at Observatory North Park. The show is an over-the-top drag competition featuring representatives from some of the community’s bars. This year's pageant will be an All-Stars edition with 5 previous contestants, who once had little or no drag experience, will come back to compete for the crown. The event benefits the programs of The San Diego LGBT Community Center. Leading up to the event, we will profile the five contestants, but you'll have to buy tickets and go the show to find out their drag name and see them in full make-up! More information and tickets can be purchased HERE.)

Bar Representing: Flick's
Check out Kirby's original Tantrums & Tiaras interview from when he competed in 2014, representing Babycakes.
What did it feel like being on the T&T stage last time?
It felt like a cartoon come to life. All the energy, the love, the MONEY WE RAISED. So surreal.
Have you been in drag since being on the T&T stage?
Only for costume events like Red Dress Party, Halloween, etc.
What have you learned about drag since being part of T&T?
It takes an army. Luckily we have a huge navy base here.
Why are YOU going to win Tantrums & Tiaras ALL STARS?
Because I've thought of everything. Those who are well prepared do the best.
Any closing thoughts?
Please help us help others. We do this to raise money, not for vanity. So buy some tickets.
