Check out this well written essay by Ed Madden for The Gay and Lesbian Review. The piece features Opus Gei (Alternative Miss Ireland 2010 contestant) as well as other cultural and artistic responses to clerical abuse scandals.
With out contest Alternative Miss Ireland is THE highlight of every queer’s year. Dark, witty, playful, offensive and intensely fabulous – AMI has been the beginning (and the end) of some of Ireland’s great queer performers. Alternative Miss Ireland, celebrates her 17th pageant on Sunday 13 March 2011. Open to men, women and others, this pageant puts contestants (the Aspiring Queen Cailíns) through traditional rounds of Daywear, Swimwear and Evening wear – though right there is where tradition ends and the insanity begins. The cohort of Cailíns battle it out on stage for the much coveted AMI Crown that currently resides on the head of the reigning Queen of Ireland, Miss Peaches Queen.
Budding contestants have until 15th January 2011 to enter. www.alternativemissireland.com
