Pageant all about a cause By RHIANNON HORRELL Working it: Clint Woolly will take to the stage this weekend as Miss Jamaica in the Queen of the Whole Universe 2010 pageant. Money raised from the event will go towards charities which work to reduce the prevalence of HIV and AIDS. Photo: JASON OXENHAM THE HEELS, the dresses, the fake eyelashes and the flair will be out in force this weekend at a beauty pageant like no other. Forty-two unconventional beauty contestants will battle it out on stage for the coveted title of Queen of the Whole Universe 2010. The event is aiming to smash the 2009 Guinness World Record for the largest drag queen stage show with 34 men performing. Central Auckland resident Clint Woolly is this year's youngest con- testant in a cameo role and will per- form as Miss Jamaica. I've got three dresses and three costume changes. It's difficult to find anything Jamaican in New Zealand. Jamaicans have very proud, strong colours to represent their tropical island nation.'' The 26-year-old is designing a headdress which is allowed to be two metres high by two metres wide and expects the night to be a lot of fun. It features men dressing as women, women as men, men as men and women as women,'' he says. The light-hearted pageant is rais- ing money for a serious cause -- charities which deal with HIV and AIDS. I've gotten to know people who have had it or who have been affec- ted,'' Mr Woolly says. It's given me an appreciation of how important it is to raise awareness. It's a terminal virus -- there's no cure.'' Proceeds from the event will go to the Queen of the Whole Universe Charitable Trust which then dis- tributes money to Body Positive, Positive Women and the New Zea- land AIDS Foundation. Mr Woolly says his home country of Papua New Guinea has one of the highest rates of infection so for the last two years he has represented the nation. He was asked to step in for Jamaica this year when another person pulled out. Organiser Jonathan Smith says participants will wear purple- themed outfits and the evening will feature a 10-minute opening extravaganza. Among highlights will be the crowning of Miss Personality, a maternity wear section, an inter- view round and an artistic piece. Queen of the Whole Universe takes place at 8pm on November 6 at the ASB Theatre, Aotea Centre, The Edge. Tickets range from $16 to $71. Visit www.buytickets. co.nz or phone 0800-289-842.
