Finally! Someone's doing a beauty pageant that's intentionally funny, and serves a greater cause than providing endless Q&A based entertainment (sorry Miss Teen South Carolina 2007, you'll never live that one down). The Portlandia Broken Beauty Pageant is a thrift-store themed comedy fashion show and benefit for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, taking place Thursday, May 16 at Society PDX. The event will include a runway show and the dreaded interview portion, and at the end of the night a Broken Beauty Queen OR King will be crowned. There will also be a raffle, an Instagram photo booth and beats by DJ A-Trane. And if you're interested in participating in the pageant there's still time, just FB message event organizer Philip Roman. Get full event details and RSVP here.
