Kicking off Pride Month

Drag artists Kat Gilardi and Manila von Teez in all their glitz and glam and glory.

Two of Cape Town’s biggest drag artists, Manila von Teez, from Goodwood, and Kat Gilardi, from Rondebosch, kicked off Pride Month at the Bay Harbour Market on Friday June 2. Flashing talons and a forest of eyelashes with rapid costume changes, they had toes tapping and hands clapping by young and old.
