Adam Garcia joins judging panel for Miss Sink The Pink

The annual pageant for transgender beauties is back in London's East End and this year Hollywood star Adam Garcia will be helping weed out the Beautiful Things from the Coyote Uglies.

Started by polysexual party promoters Sink The Pink, the event in the UK capital's Bethnal Green Working Men's Club on 28 July will see five contestants from around the world competing for the title of Miss Sink The Pink and a fish-net stocking's worth of exciting prizes.

A panel of judges will be using their expertise to decide who gets to walk the catwalk of glory and who's shown the door.

Hollywood hearthrob and Aussie dance legend Adam Garcia will join Radio 1 queen of breakfast Gemma Cairney, fashion diva PPQ's Amy Molyneaux, Heat magazine editor Lucie Cave and The Feeling lead singer Daniel Gillespie Sells.

And of course, not forgetting last year's champion JonBenet Blonde.

'It's going to be bigger and more outlandish than ever before this year,' said Sink The Pink organizer Glyn Fussell.

'Plus we are opening both floors for the first time ever to herald the return of the patron saint of Sink The Pink, the legendary Ma Butcher, and the equally fabulous Lazy Susan will be opening up Miserable Bitches, their new amazing night in the downstairs club.

'Plus as always, the hottest, in-the-know crowd in London, Glitter my Shitter make over stand, cheap drinks, shows, pole dancing trash bags, and the most fun, chaotic crowd in London.'

Fussell describes Sink The Pink, which already has a cult following among London's straight and LGBT community, as 'a secret club that embraces anyone, straight, gay, black, old, young.

Speaking to GSN in March, he added: 'If you like to party we will open you with open arms.'

Miss Sink The Pink will run at the Bethnal Green Working Men's Club on Saturday (28 July) from 9pm to 3am. Shows start from 10pm. For more information, visit the Sink The Pink Facebook page here.
