FL: Ybor City Becoming a Drag Competition Hot Spot

Published Date Author: , March 26th, 2011

Ybor City DragHundreds of people in designer jeans, evening gowns and suits will head to Ybor City’s Honey Pot on Sunday to watch the region’s up-and-coming drag queens compete for a crown.

Some will arrive in limousines and sit at linen-covered tables behind velvet ropes. Six-and-a-half-foot queens will strut the red carpet to clicking cameras.
Pageant promoter Bob Taylor promises an “euphoric” night.

The scene has become increasingly common at the Honey Pot, a nightclub along the Seventh Avenue strip. More than three years after opening as a Las Vegas-style burlesque bar, the club has evolved into a hot spot for major drag queen pageants.

“We are very quickly becoming regarded around the nation as a home for the best drag talent in the country,” said D. Stephen Moss, a Honey Pot co-owner who also owns G.Bar and the Ybor City Social Club.
