For the 23rd year, Albuquerque Pride brings us the annual New Mexico Pride Pageant at the African American Performing Arts Center. This culmination of the incredible performances we see all year at our local and regional clubs is a fierce spectacle of glamour, talent, poise and, of course, the best looks of the year. Friday night, Nov. 2 brings out all registered competitors for the preliminaries. These drag and gay, youth and adult LGBTQIA contestants compete for four coveted titles including Miss New Mexico Pride, Mr. New Mexico, Miss New Mexico Pride Youth and Mr. New Mexico Pride Youth. Once they narrow it down to the most powerful performers on night one, head out Saturday, Nov. 3 as they pick each other off, one by one, to win those sparkly crowns. The doors open both nights at 6pm and the pageant takes hold from 7 to 10 pm. Grab Friday tickets for $10 general admission and $20 VIP and Saturday $15 for general and $25 for VIP. This is an all-ages event. Support the community with pride. (Mayo Lua de Frenchie)
