2020 Diamond Crystal Awards “The Source for Drag” in Arizona begins its nominations for the 2020 Diamond Crystal Awards.

Since 2019 LLC has honored the Men & Woman of Drag in Arizona for their achievements throughout the year with the Diamond Crystal Awards. This yearly celebration honors Drag Entertainers from all across Arizona in 16 categories including 4 Award of Excellence awards.

“When I started, it was to support and promote the Drag Entertainers in Arizona. After six months of launching the website I cam up with the award show idea after seeing the Echo Magazine Readers Choice Awards and Barbra Seville Golden Wig Head Awards” said Founder Edward Michael

All nominations are chosen by public nomination and the top five of each category are nominated for the respective category throughout the month of May. In June, the public votes for their favorite in the various categories to determine the overall winner of the award.

This year has re-named their “Celebrity Impersonator of the Year” award to the Coco St James “Celebrity Impersonator of the Year” award. Coco St James has won every year in this category for the past decade.

“Coco St James Lady Gaga is a untouchable impersonation. It was no surprised to me that she won every year. After last year’s tenth victory in a row, I spoke with Coco and advised her of the idea to re-name the award and no longer have her be eligible to win the category. She respected it and was honored to have an award in her name” continued Edward Michael plans to produce the yearly event in July of 2020. But is prepared to turn the event virtual if public gatherings are not allowed by that point due to the on-going global pandemic.
