The Carnival drag queens of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
Introducing the Drag Queen Gala
The Carnival of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is one of the most famous Carnivals in all of Spain. Taking place annually in February and/or March, it's overshadowed by the likes of Rio de Janeiro and Venice, but is no less worthy of your time.

But words just can't do them justice. For an out-of-this-world experience that's really only as far as the Canary Islands, click through the following gallery to marvel at the Carnival drag queens of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
