The winners of the coveted Mr and Miss Cape Town Pride 2010 titles will represent the Mother City’s lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgendered and intersex community during the Pride Festival, taking place over the period 26 February till 7 March. They will also represent Cape Town Pride at other official functions during the year. “This year we’re taking the pageant to new heights with the support and teamwork of all communities who have been working in partnership to deliver an evening of true Cape Town fabulosity”, says Luiz Delaja, organiser of the pageant and deputy festival director of Cape Town Pride.

Importantly, the winner of the Mr Cape Town Pride title will win an entry to the finals of the Mr Gay South Africa contest, while this year’s Miss Cape Town Pride will be one of the finalists in the Miss Gay Western Cape pageant. .

The hunky Charl van den Berg, recently crowned Mr Gay South Africa, will make a guest appearance on stage and a line-up of dynamic and prominent personalities will act as judges. Included in the live entertainment will be the distinctive sounds of Claire Philips and Mathew Moolman.
