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.
The next Alternative Miss World event is planned for October 2022. It is the 50th anniversary of the first event and to celebrate the theme will be GOLD. The venue has been announced as the Shakespeare’s Globe in London but no exact date has be confirmed to date.
