Rev Jen Declares 15th Annual Mr. Lower East Side Pageant Still On for Tonight

Not to worry, a little snow can’t stop the fantastical mayhem that is the annual Mr. Lower East Side Pageant, “whereupon the women and gay men of the Lower East Side choose one lucky man to rule the area south of Houston and east of Bowery.”

Mr. Lower East Side Pageant Back at Bowery Poetry Club

Downtown’s favorite elf-eared art star, Saint Reverend Jen, will be hosting the 12th Annual “Mr. Lower East Side Pageant” at The Bowery Poetry Club this evening. (Locally) renowned contestants will participate in a one-minute talent competition, as well as swimsuit and evening wear segments. (For a glimpse at past contestants – and to get a sense of the wacky mayhem that is sure to ensue, visit the Village Voice coverage of last year’s pageant here.)
