The quirky city of Eugene, Oregon annually plays host to an
utterly bizarre beauty pageant, known as the SLUG Queen Festival.
Taking its name from an acronym (the Society for the Legitimisation
of the Ubiquitous Gastropod) - purportedly developed in honour of
the slimy creatures that fill Eugene's perennially-sodden gardens -
the festival started as an anti-pageant of sorts, designed to mock
the usual way in which beauty competitions are run. This anarchic,
playful spirit has imbued every SLU Event Date: 25 - 28 August 2011 Venue: Eugene, Oregon Website:www.slugqueen.com
