Miss Drag South Africa, is a national pageant where beautiful and intelligent hopefuls from across the nation vie for this prestigious title. Enigma says that “the brand celebrates diversity and thus acts as an inclusive pageant to drag queens, gender queer and trans bodies. The platform highlights the aim of ‘Drag for a Purpose’ to inspire ordinary people that carry out extraordinary things to advocate the advancement of LGBTQA+ rights, drag culture, serve as agents for change and uplift their communities by serving as positive role models. MDSA
