Nightlife impresario and gender-bending entertainment legend MURRAY HILL and trans culture magazine ORIGNIAL PLUMBING presents and hosts the 3rd annual MR. TRANSMAN 2013 FTM (female-to-male) competition at The Knitting Factory in Brooklyn. 2011 was the 2nd MR. TRANSMAN, while 2010 marked the first documented FTM competition in NY and possibly the world. Not only was this competition a historic nightlife event, it has been an unabashed sold-out success that created a media-storm and drew an incredibly diverse audience.
This year, we’ve curated some incredible trans talent such as: ATHENS BOYS CHOIR, the “Jewish Transsexual Weird Al” word artist and homo-hop performer; JULIANA HUXTABLE, artist in the collective House of Ladosha and nightlife trans priestess; MERRIE CHERRY, Drag Superstar, KIT YAN, winner of the first ever Mr. Transman; GLENN MARLA, performance artist pageant queen, plus TEDDIE B GLAZE, the reigning MR. TRANSMAN who will pass off his sash to the 2013 winner.
The evening will feature a competition of five diverse transmen contestants from the local community who will compete for the MR. TRANSMAN 2013 title in the following categories: PLATFORM, SWIMSUIT, INTERVIEW, TALENT, and EVENING WEAR. They will be judged by a panel of celebrated trans and queer personalities. The winner will receive a cash prize, a photo spread in ORIGINAL PLUMBING (the premier magazine dedicated to the culture of FTM trans guys, sex toys from Good Vibrations, Stoli gift bag, and an enormous Trophy custom made in Queens.
After several years producing the infamous MISS LEZ PAGEANT and with the growing spectrum of gender expression, Murray wanted to create an inclusive trans -focused evening of entertainment to create a positive space and raise the visibility of this slice of the queer community.
