Mistr Brno 2005, for starters
While I don't live in Brno, I don't feel that I should be completely ignorant of what is... um... happening there (as Jesse so delicately puts it). Nor should my readers; we wouldn't want to be too Pragocentric.
Therefore, let me point everyone to Večerní Brno's valuable coverage of the Mistr Brno 2005 contest, which took place December 23 at a local club. Contestants had to show their merits in three "disciplines."
Judging by the photos, cross-dressing was a popular free-choice discipline (see right). "Promenading" in underwear (promenáda ve spodním prádle) was, not surprisingly, a significant part of the contest.
The first-place winner (he in the hat and black lingerie) won the title of Tělo roku 2005 back in August.
Today's headline news in Večerní Brno, incidentally, is that Indians are a normal thing in Brno. Judging by the accompanying photo, below, I wouldn't be too sure about that. They look pretty abnormal to me. When did you last see a Native American with dreadlocks? Then again, if they are in Brno, it would be normal for them to stand near a brewery ad, as they are doing.
