Watch Australia's brightest drag queen performer and most stunning transgender woman crowned in the country's biggest beauty pageant for female impersonators and transsexuals.

In its fifth year, the 'Miss Gay and Miss Transsexual Australia 2015' beauty pageant will be staged at the Yarraville Club, 135 Stephen Street, Yarraville, on Saturday, 31 January 2015 from 6pm.

The theme for this year's pageant is 'Mardi Gras/Priscilla' (Miss Gay Australia) and 'Las Vegas Showgirl' (Miss Transsexual Australia).

Highlights of the night include a costume parade sky-high headpieces, glamorous feathers and glitzy sequins; camp performances à la 'Priscilla, Queen of the Desert'; a sexy swim wear parade; and evening wear.

This year's pageant has attracted hopefuls from the Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Victoria and New Zealand.

Last year's winners were Kristal Fuentez (Miss Gay Australia 2014) from Victoria and Aiko Montecarlo-Boyles (Miss Transsexual Australia 2014) from New South Wales.

Past winners have been from Victoria, Queensland, New South Wales and Western Australia.

For the first time this year, pageant contestants will get to support an advocacy cause. Among the groups represented are Animals Australia, Ausgender, Beyond Blue, Cancer Council Victoria, Carmen Rupe Memorial Trust, Deaf Australia, Down Syndrome Australia, Lung Foundation Australia, Transkids Purple Rainbow Foundation and YGender.

The winners will receive cash prize and other prizes from sponsors, who include Alex Martin Photography, Alexi Darling Media, Birchbox Flowers, Charismatico Dancewear, Dizingof, Face of Australia, Kamol Cosmetic Hospital, Kroylan Australia, Philippine Tours, TSChitChat and Yarraville Club.

Started by non-profit organisation Victorian Secrets Promotions, 'Miss Gay and Miss Transsexual Australia' is held every year in Melbourne since 2010. The pageant aims to raise awareness and promote acceptance and positive images of female impersonators/drag queens and transgender/transsexual women. All contestants must be born male to qualify for the pageant.

The pageant is a major event of the 2015 Midsumma Festival.
