Queer travelers need practically no excuse to visit the Bay Area, but fans of the art of drag will be happy to know about the 14th Annual San Francisco Drag King Contest, hosted by DragStrip Productions.

This year's "Surf Saga-Themed" event takes place on August 15 at  DNA Lounge, and the San Francisco Bay Times has called this yearly event as "Sexy, campy, draglicious, professionally executed, and full of talent."

This year's featured performers include 2008 Solo King winner Papa Don Preach, 2008 reigning troup Fella-Fem, special guests Arty Fishal, Dee Dee Luxe, and the Psychobilly Punk Band.

The judges will rate everything from studliness to sex appeal and fashion sense—this year's panel will include previous titleholders Rusty Hips and Jay Walker, as well as SF scene celebrities Anna Conda (hostess of Charlie Horse at the Cinch, Herr-a-Chick, and Simone DeLaGetto (of Harlem Shake Burlesque).

Door open at 8 p.m. on Saturday, August 15 at DNA Lounge—the show will benefit P.A.W.S., a volunteer organization that provides companion animals to people with debilitating diseases. Dress code looks are as follows: Drag of all kinds (faux, king, and queen), Fetish, formal, High Femme, Surfer (and Surfette), and Bikini Beach Babe (of all time periods) and/or "Festive."
