July 6, 2011, SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Big Ball Holder, DragStrip Productions, announces the “Doggone Sweet 16”  San Francisco Drag King Contest (SFDK16).  Grab your favorite bone and b-tch, get down on all fours, lick ‘em if you got em, and prepare to get ruff!  San Francisco’s internationally-known Dog Day of Androgyny will bring together a carnivorously diverse Sex and Drag and Rock & Roll Kennel Club of primping and preening canines, pups, pooches, hounds and feral beasts to select the 2011 ‘Best in Show’ Drag King at The DNA Lounge, August 5, 2011.  Again, the SF Drag King Contest throws the proverbial benefit bone to PAWS (Pets Are Wonderful Support – www.pawssf.org) - a volunteer-based organization that provides for the comprehensive needs of companion animals for low-income persons with HIV/AIDS and other disabling illnesses.

"One of the most boisterous parties of the year," barks the SF Chronicle, it’s also "Sexy, campy, dragalicious, professionally executed and full of talent," yelps the SF Bay Times, and "Impressive, varied, and wild," yaps The Onion.  The SFBG.com demands you heel to their command of, "Prepare to be amazed by the variety, astounded by the veracity, and properly impressed by the figurative and literal balls on display."

"The San Francisco Drag King Contest is a mash-up of the Miss America Pageant, American Idol, Halloween and a Monster Truck Show, and this year we’ve thrown in a little bit of Westminster Dog Show regality," states Top Dog Pack Leader impresario and emcee Fudgie Frottage, aka: “The Man with the Biggest Balls in Show Business.”

Co-emcee, Sister Roma of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, 'The Most Photographed Nun in the World’ barks, "Every year some of the Kings are so hot I just want to go into heat, heel, roll over, play dead and get sniffed and licked while whimpering the night away.  I can't wait to see which hunky butch studs come out this year to hump the leg of He-Mandom!"
