Started in 1972, The Alternative Miss World is not about beauty – it’s about transformation – and when it comes to costume absolutely anything goes. Like the real Miss World, there is day wear, swim-wear and evening wear and the all-important personality interview! But Logan refuses to let anyone rehearse, and anything can – and often does – happen.It’s about creative free-reign, about the ordinary becoming extraordinary. Contestants over the years have been famous and infamous, celebrated and unknown, a parade of freaks, fops, show-offs and drag queens… including Andrew’s many friends and family! The climax is a tear-stained coronation with Logan’s dazzling Crown Jewels made of broken mirrors.
