Busan Drag Prom is back

BUSAN, South Korea -- Start scouring the local vintage shops and the back of your closet for flares, gold chains and afro wigs- because on Saturday, June 21st disco fever is going to rain down on KSU.

Almost Famous and Eva’s will be hosting this year’s “Saturday Night Diva” themed event which kicks off at 9pm. Wrist bands will be on sale for 5000 won at the door of both establishments allowing you to keep on truckin’ between both bars all night. Busan Drag Prom aims to celebrate our gay community and raise awareness and funds for its’ allies. 100% of the proceeds this year will go to our friends at ISHAP, a Korean non-profit human rights organization who offer anonymous HIV and STI testing, education and counseling to the citizens of Busan.

While we do promise to drown you in the gorgeous sounds of disco, pop and funk, the prom is open to your fabulous interpretation. Busan Drag Prom is an all-inclusive event where for one dragalicious night, all labels are left at the door and everyone lets their inner Queen or King rule. Korean, expat, LGBT, or straight as an arrow, you don’t have to drag-up or even dress up.. but you’ll probably have more fun if you do!

As usual, we will choose the most “Bitchin’ Bunny”  and “Stone Fox Daddy-o “ based on their Creativity, Uniqueness, Nerve, and Talent to be the King and Queen of the night. And don’t forget to get a snapped at the photo wall in each bar for your chance to win big in our Facebook Photo Contest.

We may not have our own Busan Pride Festival (yet!), but we guarantee we’re gonna have you movin’ and groovin’ all night long. ‘Like’ us on Facebook to keep in touch for more event details!

Can you dig it?
