ABOUT GAPA RUNWAY
GAPA Runway is our annual drag show / performance / entertainment extravaganza. During the show, contestants battle it out through rounds of fashion, talent, and Q&A before a panel of API/LGBTQ community leader judges. At the end of the show, a new reigning Mr. GAPA and Miss GAPA are crowned. These two will play a key role as GAPA representatives in local and GAPA-sponsored events.
